"A critical component of our program is developing a positive peer culture. Together we provide community service because we believe helping others increases self-esteem and resiliency - both of which are crucial for our adolescents to successfully transition into adulthood."
Your Child's Potential is Our Passion.
We are a residential program for youth ages 10-21 who have psychosocial and mental health needs. We create treatment plans and interventions that are personalized to meet the changing needs of our participants. Youth and families actively participate in their treatment plan. We adapt our programs to accommodate the special needs of youth and families and believe that when at all possible, children belong with their families. We strive to provide the support and structure that all youth need and ensure that young people are physically and emotionally safe.
Our guiding vision is a commitment to helping children and youth to return to their family or other home-like setting and involving families and significant others in the treatment process is essential to the youth’s success. We work together- youth, family, and staff- to create positive pathways to reunification. Parental and community involvement includes workshops and support groups for identified topic areas. We understand that people are social and have a deep-rooted desire to belong, so we create positive, pro-social opportunities where participants can turn for a sense of belonging. We believe that with the right support, teaching, coaching, and nurturing, everyone can advance and realize their goals.
