DePelchin’s prevention and early intervention services work to strengthen and support children and families while decreasing the future need for more intensive services.  Our programs target children and families at risk of, or currently experiencing, a range of challenging issues, including family conflict, alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse, bullying and school drop out. 

DePelchin's prevention and early intervention services are offered throughout the Greater Houston area and include:

Counseling Programs

DePelchin offers individual and family counseling in addition to parenting support through its Community-based Counseling Program and STAR (Sevices-to-At-Risk-Youth) program.  DePelchin also offers Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) services for young children.

At-risk Youth Programs

DePelchin supports at-risk youths with a range of evidence-based programs available throughout the Greater Houston area.  These programs offer counseling, at-risk education, and other services to youths and families living in crisis. 

School-Based Programs
