We provide a community based residential treatment program for up to eight adolescent males ages (13 to 21) who have developmental or intellectual disabilities along with psychiatric or behavior disorders, resulting from abuse/trauma. We provide these youth with placement in a caring, nurturing and structured home-like environment that can help them learn how to manage tasks of daily living, communication/social skills, following direction, and aggressive or disruptive behaviors.
We promote youth and family education about living with a developmental disability and coping with serious behavioral challenges. We also build skills to maintain wellness upon return to permanent placement. Recreational activities, library use, drumming circle, participation on sports teams, all contribute to normalcy in this setting.
We increase the percentage of clients who are in school or an educational alternative who are able to maintain daily routine and hygiene needs when they are reunified with their family (if applicable), or specialized foster care/adoption or successfully transitioned to a more appropriate placement.
