Residential Services

Five community residences for children ages 6-21 who have various mental health needs

What we offer

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 (Horton, Hope, Mauran) are classified as Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities offering intensive inpatient services to youth with various mental health issues. One house (Harding) is a hospital step-down or diversion program and the final house (Hills) 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 practice-informed, and consistent with the research of sustained positive outcomes. We aspire to a high level of cultural and linguistic competence, clinical excellence, and measurable quality standards.
