Your "voice & choice" will guide our service planning

We will share "nothing about you, without you"

We rely on collaboration with our community partners

We provide education, outreach and behavioral health services as part of our collaboration with community partners such as Volunteers of America (VOA), Crosswalk, YFA Connections, Crisis Residential Center (CRC), and along side other individuals and organizations in our community.

Seven billion people in the world and each one of us has a different fingerprint. Our spiritual, cultural and psychological self, along with each of our countless sub-cultures, is unique, and this is part of what makes us an individual. Excelsior recognizes the need for individuals to discover, decipher and/or determine, what about their culture matters to them. They tell us what support they may seek in these areas. We partner with a variety of experts who provide culture, spiritual and religious groups. We provide a group environment marked by unity, respect and safety.

We accept most major medical insurances, Medicaid, and no youth is turned away for an inability to pay.

Hospital Diversion

Excelsior has new and innovative programs to divert from acute institutional care. Traditional hospitalization and other acute stabilization services are disruptive to the individual and family system, and also extremely costly to community tax dollars. Excelsior aims to offer services that are more individualized and tailored to the unique person or family's needs.
