Harbor Behavioral Healthcare receives excellence award

Toledo: On Wednesday, April 18, 2007, Harbor Behavioral Healthcare, a not-for-profit mental health and wellness agency, received an “excellent” for the 2007 Youth Program Excellence Award.  Harbor is one of only four organizations throughout the state of Ohio to receive this award.

L-R: Ruben Orozco, Vocational Specialist, Darlene White, and Rachel Rodríguez, Vocational Program Mgr. – Youth, of Harbor Behavior Healthcare.

YES is a comprehensive program addressing both vocational and non-work needs of youth ages 19-21 that will lead to employment and long-term job retention.  The program offers options to young adults and is an opportunity to build relationships, identify personal resources and obtain training to meet their ultimate goal.  It incorporates activities such as tutoring, summer employment opportunities, paid and unpaid work experience, leadership development, and comprehensive guidance and counseling.

The crux of the YES program is to provide youth in poverty with opportunities to obtain and retain employment that is valuable and meaningful to them, thus becoming productive citizens, contributing to their community, and advancing their socio-economic status.  It also helps to nurture self-esteem while laying the foundation for personal success one step at a time.

Darlene White, Program Director states, “I am grateful that Harbor has the opportunity to touch the lives of these young adults and offer them hope.”

Harbor Behavioral Healthcare’s knowledgeable and friendly staff includes licensed counselors, social workers, registered nurses, developmental pediatricians, psychologists, and psychiatrists. Harbor has nine locations serving the Northwest Ohio area, accepts most insurance, and has day and evening appointments available. For more information on the YES Program or any of Harbor’s programs call 800.475.4449.  Harbor serves over 12,000 people annually.
