West Shield transports adolescents to programs and facilities through the United States and across the world. We are also experienced and licensed to locate runaways and provide crisis intervention. All of our services are based on non-violent crisis intervention techniques, which emphasize communication to resolve conflict.
Compassion and patience are used in our work with adolescents, although it may be necessary to temporarily restrain adolescents who are at risk of hurting themselves or others.
At West Shield, we have transported more than 17,000 adolescents in over 25 years in the industry. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist families in need.
