Jim Hancock has been a mentor from afar for many of us serving at-risk youth. He and Rich Van Pelt have created an invaluable resource in the form of Help Sheets for Youth Workers. These help sheets are design for the purpose of helping youth workers where they are. They might use this as a launchpad to take a family further when a crisis arises or, for someone who‘s inexperienced, it might double their knowledge on short notice.

I have used Jim and Rich’s resources for the better part of two decades. They were, and remain, staples in my resources collection today.

Some of these worksheets are free and others for a small cost. They are worth the investment either way. You can visit Jim’s website here at The Tiny Company Called Me for more details.
