This chapter describes the Visiting Nurse Service of New York's Mobile Community Support Service's (MCSS), the creation of a caring community for emotionally distressed youth based on recognizing that we are one; we are family. The MCSS is a component of Families Reaching in Ever New Directions, Inc. (FRIENDS, Inc.). The chapter briefly reviews the theoretical changes leading to the current emphasis on community-based, family-driven care; describes key components of the tri-level intervention model of care; illustrates use of the model and discusses outcomes, including difficulties as well as successes; and reviews lessons learned.
