Our Hope Homes Program is designed to provide a safe, supervised and structured residential setting for males and females between the ages of 12 and 19, who have been identified through the NJ DCF’s Children’s System of Care as having behavioral health needs and co-occurring intellectual or developmental challenges. In addition to residential treatment, we provide social skills, medication management, educational and vocational services. The ultimate goal of these interventions is to encourage each unique individual to develop the skills and competencies to assist in transitioning back home, and which will allow them to gain a sense of increased independence and more positive adaptive daily living skills.
Our inter-disciplinary treatment team is dedicated to providing a therapeutic and healing environment for the youth and families we serve. Our program provides 24-hour supervision in a highly structured and safe environment. It is our goal to work with your child, family, care management organization and any other individuals that have a significant role in your child’s life. We hope that by working together, with you and your family, together we’ll work to transition youth back to their community and/or return home.
