Program Philosophy
The short-term therapeutic home supports children ages 6 to 17 with complex mental, emotional, and physical health issues. The goal is to achieve stabilization through comprehensive assessment, planning, treatment and support. The expectation is that within 30 to 90 days, transfer to an alternative community living situation will be achieved.
