Many adolescents who have been institutionalized need a transitional home. This program provides therapeutic home environments to help them develop life skills.
The children we serve:
- Adolescent males and females between the ages of 13 – 18
- Children who have experienced severe trauma in their past
- Adolescents coming from restrictive residential environments (some formerly placed out of state), but who have been identified as potential candidates to thrive in a smaller therapeutic setting
- Teens who will eventually return to their family of origin and/or who may require other supportive environments beyond their stay at the Group Home
How the program works:
- The Department of Children and Families makes referrals to the Group Home located within the community.
- Staff work to increase their ability to manage day to day challenges, guide them through the healing process, and help them develop the necessary skills to thrive in the community.
- Group Home residents are involved in the day to day tasks of running the home and play an integral role in planning activities.
- A child’s family is a welcomed resource. When reunification is a goal, families are expected to be involved in the treatment process.
- Psychiatric evaluation, treatment and medication management is offered by our trained and certified staff. The group home clinician provides individual, group and family treatment.
