Message from the Founder
Ryan Cargando, PhD
Our agency is embarking a new milestone with our expanded programs and services. The last year has marked new partnerships and collaboration in our community and other counties. Recently, we have ventured into our mental health services by providing individual counseling to our children in their foster homes and behavioral support services designed to teach them coping skills and promote emotional stability. We have been providing psycho-social assessments or family evaluation to families in Ventura County for family preservation and permanency.
We are a dynamic foster care treatment agency due to our innovative and creative services and approach to treatment. We view each child as unique and we work hard to make sure that we meet their needs. In addition, we care about their birth families and endeavor to support their journey towards reunification by serving as advocates for linkages and connection to a faith community where they may find their purpose and healing.
I also believe in supporting resource families and empowering them to effectively meet the needs of children and youth in their care. We strive to implement a cohesive approach to treatment through our behavioral intervention and support.
I am blessed to work with a team of resilient and purposeful professionals who are highly committed to serve children and families.
To all of Creative Solutions' board members, staff, foster families, community partners and individual patrons, Thank you.
