Make A Referral

Whether you’re a professional, parent, guardian, teacher, coach or anyone with a child entrusted to your care whom you know or suspect needs help, now is the time to reach out to Perseus House, Inc.

All questions are welcome! We’ll walk you through the process. We’ll make every step easy and understandable.

We’re also glad to give you additional guidance and referrals if what you’re facing requires a different approach than what we offer.

With traumatized and troubled youth, today is always the best day to take this first step.

We look forward to hearing from you.
