Koinonia to celebrate 10 years keeping Placer families together

Local residents can help celebrate Koinonia Homes for Teens’ 10th anniversary of the Crisis Resolution Center that has helped more than 1,000 Placer County families stay together. The free event will take place 4:30-7:30 p.m. on Sept. 19 at Koinonia’s Crisis Resolution Center, 3751 Magnolia Street, Loomis, and will include live entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and presentations from county officials and families who have received help. For more information, call (916) 652-0171.

Koinonia’s Crisis Resolution Center is funded through Placer County and works to resolve family crises and reunify Placer County youth ages 12-17 with their families. The Crisis Resolution Center provides counseling and referral services, as well as six beds for short-term residential services when youth need somewhere to stay while a family crisis is being resolved. Ninety percent of families at the Crisis Resolution Center stay together. For more information, visit http://www.kfh.org/services/crc.cfm.

“We are proud of the people who, over the last 10 years, have worked hard to rebuild their families at the Crisis Resolution Center, and we’re grateful to Placer County for keeping this resource available to local families,” said Bill Ryland, director of Koinonia Homes for Teens and the Crisis Resolution Center. “The anniversary event will provide a great opportunity for people to hear some inspiring stories and to celebrate the center’s great achievements over the last decade.”

Koinonia Homes for Teens, a division of Koinonia Family Services, works with teens in several specialized programs. With six homes located in Placer and Sacramento counties, and a Community School and Treatment Center in Loomis, Koinonia is one of the premiere adolescent substance abuse treatment programs in the state. Each home is staffed with caring professionals that bring a home-like atmosphere and quality treatment during this difficult out-of-home placement. For more information, visit http://teens.kfh.org.
