so your child can go forward.

Providing a path to success for children & young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges


Your child is always on your mind.

You’re doing the best you can, but you’re struggling. Your child is struggling.

There’s confusion & red tape & so much unknown – and still you try. To understand, to make sense of the labyrinth of options & terms & agencies. To build relationships. To get your child signed on to the services that offer so much potential.

You’re doing all you can.

But you don’t need to do it alone.

We can refer you to a care management team that does all that – and more.

Go Forward Services works and can refer you to care management agencies to ensure that your child’s needs are addressed in the most stress-free, results-oriented way.

Multiple therapies & services – coordinated

Professional relationships – cultivated

Your questions & concerns – addressed

Your child’s care, managed.

And all your next steps charted.

Requires a diagnosis of medical fragility (ages 0-21) or serious emotional disturbance (ages 5-21)
Care management agencies accept Medicaid and most major insurances.


HCBS services address many issues.

We provide staffing for HCBS services

Our clients are dealing with many different challenges.

Michael is 11 years old and has been in and out of therapy since he started kindergarten. He has difficulty with social skills and executive functioning – and is unable to navigate the world like a typical 11 year old. His mother has taken him to every specialist, but nothing seems to help.

Isaac is a 20 year old young man who’s always had trouble with his peers – and he now sees the same challenge unfolding in the workplace. He refuses to take the medication prescribed for his anxiety because it makes him tired, but that means he can’t focus on working, learning new skills, or interacting with the rest of the team.

Sylvia was born with a congenital heart defect which resulted in multitudes of surgeries to repair the defect and improve blood flow. Sylvia has spent a large part of her early childhood years in hospitals and treatment centers, experiencing trauma due to parental separation and invasive procedures. Mom is apprehensive to send Sylvia to preschool, as her medication needs to be administered timely. As well, Sylvia’s separation anxiety needs to be addressed to ensure that she has a productive school year.

Abby is displaying severe signs of trauma and separation anxiety after her parent’s divorce. Abby has been privy to contentious altercations between her parents leading up to their divorce, and the custody battle that ensued did little to assuage Abby’s insecurities. She is prone to violent, raging outbursts, destroying home and school property, and setting fires to neighborhood dumpsters. Abby’s school counselor is concerned that if she does not receive intense behavioral and emotional rehabilitation, her destructive behavior will escalate to the point of admission to a juvenile justice facility.

Frieda has been struggling with excessive weight gain as a young child. By the age of 12 her self-image and negative relationship with food has led her to develop a severe case of anorexia. Frieda’s mom has paid for extensive interventions, including specialized dieticians and psychotherapy. However, Frieda’s condition continued to worsen and she was admitted to the psych ward for observation, monitoring, and further treatment. Prior to discharge, Mom needs to ensure that Frieda has someone monitoring her food intake and general personal hygiene.

At 16 months of age, Uri developed a severe case of eczema that covered large parts of his body, including his arms, legs and back. Excessive scratching has enabled open-wound infections to fester. Additionally, due to Uri’s lactose intolerance, he is prone to asthma attacks. Uri’s Mom is overwhelmed with the amount of supervision needed to keep Uri safe. She needs to ensure that Uri is occupied and distracted to prevent itching, monitor his food intake, and be on-call to administer the inhaler in case of an asthma attack.

With support, smiles, and a plethora of resources, we’re here for them.

HCBS… with love.

No one knows or loves your child like you do.
