Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Family-style residential care for youth

Using evidence-based trauma-sensitive methods, Westview provides family-style residential care for adolescent young men. The thrust of this program is to prepare young men for a peaceful return to their family of origin or to equip them for launch as a resilient person into a challenging world. Using a unique plan of care written with the boy’s family (and connected to Ansell-Casey life skills), the caregiver team shapes each of these larger programs for the boy’s unique needs by helping them choose the individual programs that move them forward: tutoring, counseling, extracurricular activities (band, chorus, drama, speech, sports), financial management, hunting, leadership training, livestock projects, music, social, spiritual, and work programs.

Population(s) Served

Westview Family Services serves families with children experiencing life challenges, including blended, adoptive, and foster families. Westview Boys’ Home provides high-quality residential care, yet WFS seeks to provide interventions that might prevent from escalating to the point that parents feel the need to place a child in residential care. WFS provides educational opportunities for parents to learn new parenting skills, especially for children who have experienced trauma or challenging life situations. Often parents need coaching, not counseling; WFS has experienced practitioners of Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) to empower parents with better practices. When family systems are troubled, WFS delivers family counseling. WFS also offers professional counseling for individual children.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Better Outcomes, Better Measures - Westview will maintain continuous quality improvement of its residential program, using Trust-Based Relational Intervention to teach young men how to cope with life, school, and their futures. Westview team members will train parents in TBRI methods to improve the likelihood and success of reunited families. We will improve our qualitative and quantitative measures to better evaluate our progress.  Preventative Interventions - Working with parents (particularly adoptive or foster parents), teachers, and law enforcement, Westview will educate others in trauma-sensitive methodologies to prevent foster and residential placements and to improve the quality of life for children from hard places.  Accreditation - Westview will attain accreditation to become a billing agency with the state of Oklahoma to diversify our revenue stream. Other certifications and licensures are in process.  Facilities and Equipment - Westview will continue to improve its use of its land, facilities, and equipment to better serve our young men. Judicious purchases and careful resource usage will model good stewardship for those in care.

Better Outcomes, Better Measures - Westview will employ a social worker to track the quality of our work using qualitative and quantitative means. Data obtained will be analyzed and reported to the team, board, and donors to identify areas of promise and potential.  Preventative Interventions - Westview will use its Family Services division to provide quality instruction in the care of traumatized youth. This contextually sensitive curriculum is designed for parents, teachers, and law enforcement and will be presented at churches, schools, and government facilities. We will add counseling staff to increase our preventative capabilities.  Accreditation - Westview team members will gather the necessary information and apply with the necessary agencies.  Facilities and Equipment - Westview continues to partner with interested donors, churches, and foundations to replace equipment as it ages out of service. Westview works with the USDA on land management issues.

Better Outcomes, Better Measures - Westview has a strong caregiver and social services team working with facilities and equipment in excellent working condition. We plan to add personnel to better implement our strategy. Westview has built a ropes course and disc golf course to provide new programming opportunities. Grants are being sought to obtain the necessary technology.  Preventative Interventions - Westview has two TBRI practitioners on staff; we are training an additional person to help increase our capability of pursuing our strategic plan of preventative work. Our Oklahoma City office provides a central location for our clients.  Accreditation - We have the data and personnel on staff; we will reapportion time usage to empower this work.  Facilities and Equipment - We provide or secure with partners important preventative maintenance and repair work as required to keep our equipment safe and in good operating condition.

Better Outcomes, Better Measures - A grant has now been received that empowers us to begin the necessary personnel search and enacting the expansion of tasks.  Preventative Interventions - Having completed the testing of our curriculum in several locations, we are now scheduling classes for 2020.  Accreditation - One of these accreditation goals has been met this fiscal year; the ability to bill for client services with Medicaid.  Facilities and Equipment - We are currently using a donor gift to replace a tractor on campus used for grounds maintenance.
