How We Care
Our System for Providing Hope
We care for children in need of a higher level of care than they could
receive in a traditional foster family. These are kids who have faced
the worst of what the world and the foster care system have to offer-including immense placement instability, sometimes bouncing to
several placements just within the course of a year. During the
orientation stage, each child is strongly supported while they
adjust and stabilize on their own timeline—ensuring the structure
needed for safety, growth, and predictability.
During the skill building and deinstitutionalization stage, we work with
each of our youth to instill the confidence necessary to spark hope
and create a desire for success. Organic daily living, routines, and
relationships are the building blocks of this phase. Our children are
also provided with rich and meaningful individual and group therapies,
which are extensive and topically specific to meet the ever-changing
dynamic of our children.
After achieving stabilization, processing existing traumas through
counseling, and building the self-regulation skills, our youth are
reintegrated into the community through the vehicle of a family! Some
are adopted, some are reunified with their biological family, and some
enter the guardianship of a family. Like all of our treatment plans, this
process is highly individualized and based upon the age, ability,
and future plans of the resident.
