The Knowledge Empowers Youth program utilizes a team approach to provide “wrap-around” support services to young adults, 17 ½ -25 years of age, who have a Mental Illness.
This program uses a blend of Medicaid and county funding. Persons supported in this program may or may not be Medicaid eligible. Persons in the program need to be eligible for Polk County Regional funding.
This program is designed to assist individuals transitioning from the youth service system to the adult service system. It focuses on developing skills and increasing self-sufficiency and community integration through employment and education.
