How We Do It

Strength-Based Approach & Response

Responsive, Compassionate Care 

Our flexible, strength-based approach allows us to tailor our programs to the specific needs of each child and family. This is accomplished through:

  • Structure, predictability and routine
  • A focus on relationships and attachment
  • Promoting child development, competence and strength-based interventions
  • Using social, recreational and therapeutic activities to promote change
  • Family involvement in all program aspects
  • The provision of aftercare support and services  

Along with these critical elements, we also incorporate specific, integrated approaches such as:

  • Activity programming
  • Sensory diets
  • A therapeutic use of daily life events
  • Community involvement
  • Family engagement
  • Academic supports/homeschooling
  • Cultural sensitivity  

Staff Training & Development

Training and development is an ongoing process that is customized to meet the specific needs of our staff and the young people in our care. We also encourage employees to seek further insight and development by sponsoring their attendance at local, national and international workshops and conferences.
