Child & Family Services’ Residential Services Department provides individualized
intensive treatment for boys and girls up to age 21 that are unable to remain in
their own homes due to their behavioral and emotional needs. Our staff provides
treatment in small-group settings to help children overcome the obstacles and traumatic
experiences that may affect their behaviors and prevent them from living at home.
