Services – Youth Services

Youth Services

We care for young individuals with a wide range of emotional, physical, and mental health needs. By providing nurturing, compassionate care, stability, advocacy, and care coordination on both a short and long-term basis and in times of crisis, we tailor youth services to those in need.

Beacon Cares For Children

Beacon provides positive and enriching respite care to children when they need a break from their typical routines.

Child Respite Services

Session I: 3:00 p.m. Sunday – 11:00 a.m. Wednesday
Session II: 3:00 p.m. Wednesday – 11:00 am Sunday

We provide positive and enriching respite care to children when they need a break from their typical routines or their primary caregivers are unavailable. It’s our goal that the young people we serve look forward to respite and visit routinely as needed.

Read More About What We Provide

Centrally located and close to many activities, our respite sessions offer enrichment activities, community engagement and more:

  • 1:1 staffing during the day with awake overnight staff.
  • Services geared towards people’s interests and what is important to them.
  • Opportunities to explore and try new things — movies, libraries, parks, shopping, etc.
  • Self-reflection writing exercises to enrich time in and away from respite.

It is our hope to develop a relationship with the people we are supporting where they look forward to their time in respite and visit routinely as needed. These services are available to children aged 5-17 years in Minnesota only. They are typically covered under individuals’ waivers (set up by their case manager), however private pay and county pay are also options.

Child Foster Care

We provide ongoing residential care and supportive services in family and corporate foster care licensed settings to children younger than 18 years old who cannot be cared for in their biological or adoptive homes.

Child Foster Crisis Services

The goal of our crisis services is to provide support and continuity in care to children and youth who are in a crisis situation and are unable to remain in their current placement. We offer short-term placement to help young individuals in times of urgent need. Considering what is important to and for them, we provide structured supports to help stabilize and transition them to less restrictive models of care. This program is licensed to support children up to the age of 18.

These services are licensed to support children aged up to 18. Referrals are done in partnership with the Metro Crisis Coordination Program through Mt. Olivet Rolling Acres.
