A new name, and a new website

Welcome to Alta Care Group’s new brand name and website! This is a very exciting time for our organization as we are growing, creating new partnerships and alliances, and developing new ways to fulfill our mission. Our new website helps mark the official introduction of our new identity, although we continue as the same independent organization with the same commitment to quality and excellence.

Formerly D&E Counseling Center, the history of Alta Care Group, Inc. stretches back to 1970. We continue to be the area’s leading expert in strengthening vulnerable children and families. The same services, programs and quality care that the community has come to know over the past 45 years remain, now under two new division names: Alta Behavioral Healthcare and Alta Head Start. As a contract agency of the Mahoning County Mental Health and Recovery Board, Alta Behavioral Healthcare continues its commitment to upholding the highest of standards set by the Board and the families we serve.

The mission of Alta Care Group is to support the social, emotional, behavioral and physical well-being of the children, adolescents, young adults and families we serve. However, with our growth, including the addition of the Head Start/Early Head Start Program for the City of Youngstown and Mahoning County, we are finding new pathways to fulfill our mission!

WHY ALTA? We chose the name Alta because it is derived from words that mean “high” and represents Alta Care Group’s commitment to:

  • High Values…which have helped the organization earn and keep the trust of the people they serve and their community partners,
  • High Quality…maintaining excellence and the highest standard of care, and
  • High Expectations…for success in helping children and healing families.

During the coming weeks and months, we will be working hard to help the community become familiar and comfortable with our change, and to understand that we are the same growing organization — with a new name. We sincerely appreciate the community’s support over our long history, and look forward to continuing to serve children and families throughout our region.
