Community-Based Family Services
Delivering Nexus Programming to Your Home and Community

We know that family stability is the key to long-term success of youth. Families and youth needing assistance are more likely to access treatment and consistently follow care plans when those services are offered close to home.

Nexus Community-Based Family Services (CBFS) provide consistent, high-quality treatment services delivered to youth and families in their homes and communities. Our CBFS programming includes a diverse selection of services to help families identify obstacles to stability and assist them in accessing community services and support networks to address those obstacles.
