Shelby County Youth Assistance Program

The Shelby County Youth Assistance Program is a voluntary program for children and their families, focusing on preventative services. Children will be referred by school counselors, law enforcement, or other agencies to receive prevention services rather than discipline or adjudication. Youth are evaluated and referred for services based on eligibility and need. Inclusive criteria includes Shelby County residency, between ages 3 and 17 at the time of referral, and determination of “at risk” by being:


  • at risk of becoming involved in a juvenile proceeding

  • at risk of being suspended or expelled from school

  • at risk of dropping out of school

  • previously children in need of services and who are in need of ongoing supervision and assistance

  • have been victims of domestic violence.


If you would like your student to be a part of this program, please contact their school counselor for a referral.

Covering Kids & Families Health Insurance Assistance

Covering Kids and Families (CKF) is an outreach program designed specifically to assist families with completing paperwork required for Hoosier Healthwise and Healthy Indiana Plan.

Our goal is to ensure that all families have access to affordable healthcare. CKF partners with schools, hospitals, clinics and various other community programs to assist children and families with their health insurance needs. Community outreach workers are assigned to areas within Marion County and the seven surrounding counties (Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan and Shelby).

Families United for Support and Encouragement (FUSE)


FUSE provides information, resources and support to Indiana families raising children with special needs. When families first learn that their child has a disability or a special health care need, they often don’t know where to turn. FUSE serves as a handbook that guides families to information and resources that make the challenge of parenting a child with special needs a little easier. They offer training sessions, Q&A meetings, and seasonal social functions, so families have a variety of ways to get involved. Families can participate in any of those ways, or they can just receive the newsletter to stay on top of current disability news and information.
