Residential Services

Residential Services provides treatment for youth ages 6-18 including a full range of individual, group, and family clinical services. Five houses on our campus provide living space for up to 37 youth at a time. Three houses are classified as Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities offering intensive inpatient services to youth with various mental health issues. One house is a hospital step-down or diversion program and the final house offers assessment and stabilization services for youth. Our Residential Services are based on the principles of the national Building Bridges Initiative which ensures that services and supports are family-driven, youth-guided, strength-based, culturally and linguistically competent, evidence and practiceinformed, and consistent with the research of sustained positive outcomes.

Outpatient Services

The Outpatient Department, known as the Shepherd Program,provides a variety of services to support children, adults, and families impacted by sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, and other trauma, such as family violence and physical abuse. A variety of programs are available for people of all ages and include office-based counseling, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, community-based treatment, clinical support groups, and trauma-informed training and consultation. All of the treatment and supportive services offered are specific to trauma. 

George N. Hunt Campus School

The George N. Hunt Campus School provides highly structured, individualized instruction, and therapeutic services to students with learning, social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. The K-12 Special Education school serves St. Mary’ Home for Children’s Residential Services youth and Day Students who are referred by their Local Education Agencies. Full clinical and therapeutic counseling and social-emotional learning is provided to all students. Small class size and personalized instruction ensure that individual needs are met. The goal for students is to prepare them to return to their public school or a less restrictive school, or to graduate ready to continue being successful learners. Related services such as Occupational Therapy, Speech/Language services, and a Reading Specialist are available per the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Full-time nursing is available at the school. An Extended School Year program helps students to maintain social, emotional, and academic gains, recover credits, and actively engages them in a program that emphasizes the outdoors, nature, and the community.

How to Obtain Services

Some of our programs require a referral from entities such as DCYF or a school district, but our Intake Coordinators can help you determine if St. Mary’s services are right for you and refer you elsewhere when necessary.
