Short Term Crisis Stabilization


Short Term Residential

Short term residential care provides a stabilization and assessment services to youth experiencing crisis, and in need of immediate placement. These children are typically involved in the child welfare system, have few natural supports and are without a place to live.

These children have been through exceptionally challenging circumstances, they are more than just a number and statistic, they are survivors. Often with few natural supports youth guided therapy encourages and gives them the confidence to advocate for themselves to help determine treatment and placement plans.

Our residential campus in Matthews, NC is well equipped to provide residential care while the child, or youth, is stabilized, treatment plans assessed and long term placements are solidified.
