Each day in a residence is designed to reflect a typical day for any child. It begins with breakfast and getting ready for school, and involves the hustle and bustle of a houseful of children in the morning. Children come home from school to snacks and playtime, homework, chores, and shared meals. They take part in typical weekend outings to local stores, restaurants, and movies.
More challenging and exciting recreational outings such as camping and white water rafting — activities that help teenagers build self-confidence and self-esteem — are options for some students.
The life skills that all students practice during their time in our residential programs — good health and hygiene, meal planning and preparation, budgeting, and appropriate social interaction — help prepare them to successfully transition into a more independent environment.
