We provide tools and support for youth to heal from emotional trauma through community-based treatment programs that foster relationships and enable youth to create hope for the future.

Our Vision and Values

We are committed to providing the highest quality treatment services and becoming a leader in trauma-informed residential and community-based treatment. Our program supports a culture characterized by a sense of respect, compassion, commitment, and integrity. We are attentive to the individual needs and potential of the young people in our care, and we have an abiding commitment to excellence to the larger community.
