Children’s Hope’s Residential Treatment program serves children struggling with emotional and behavior issues related to abuse and neglect.

The Day Program
Children’s Hope’s Day Program serves children who need more care than an outpatient program but do not need residential services. Children participate in psycho-educational groups that teach coping skills, stress management and drug education, as well as weekly individual therapy sessions and psychiatrist evaluations. This program also provides support for foster families, adoptive parents, and family members.
