A Message from Our CEO - May 2024

accompanying youth ages 6 to 14

Our program assists children and adolescents ages 6 to 14 who have experienced loss, unexpected challenges, and significant trauma, and whose behaviors presently prevent them from living safely at home.

Our team embraces an individualized, data-informed, and evidence-based approach. We include each child’s family and caregivers as full partners during the program.

Our goal is to provide healing treatment and teach new skills so children and youth can be safe and successful in their homes and communities. Every day, we seek for youth to experience joy and to know they matter.
