About US:

Crisis - The Crisis Program provides a safe 24-hour environment for children birth to 17 with intervention measures to immediately alleviate crisis by providing emergency shelter, food, clothing, educational needs, conflict resolution, emergency medical attention, and counseling services to prevent child abuse and neglect. The program is designed to aid parents and/or referral sources in reducing parental stress, improve family communication skills and prevent future crisis.

Stability - The Stabilization Program is residential treatment offering 24/7 therapeutic services for children 6-12 with acute emotional and behavioral problems. The Stabilization Program is designed to stabilize the child's behaviors while building the caregiver's skills to provide a safe and nurturing environment once the child is stable and safe enough to return home. Treatment is based on each child's individualized needs.
