The Collingwood program is a transitional program, with two locations, offering therapeutic community based care. Our first location in Collingwood may have up to four youth aged 12-17 living in the home at any given time. Collingwood operates on a house-parented, group-care model for young people who have experienced trauma and may need support with mental health, social and emotional wellness. The families of the youth we support may be having challenges in providing support to their youth as they approach young adulthood. In a family-like setting, this program provides services for youth with therapeutic approach and a clinical lens.
This program is less intensive than therapeutic campus based care but more support services and supervision than a foster home may provide. It is ideal for youth are preparing and/or ready for community living.
The Collingwood location has a House Parent who resides in the home full time with the youth and is supported daily by staff members. The youth in our programs tend to have experienced traumatic events such as neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, school/academic difficulties, drug involvement and parent-adolescent conflict to name a few. Our team focuses on healing and growth to support the youth in a successful transition to young adulthood.
