It was Aldrich who founded the Children’s Hope Residential Services in the year 2002. Such type of nonprofit organization is offering the support as well the care for such adolescents who were actually abused and were neglected. They are put in the children’s protective services especially for those who were struggling with their behaviors and emotions. When this was founded, that organization has helped over 2,000 children in Texas alone.
There are three individual treatment centers and the residential life program offers 24 hours of care for such children. Know that each center comes with a specialized care team that would include therapists, health professionals, direct care counselors, administrative staff and case managers. The care team actually ensures that every child is taken care of and has that supportive and safe environment to process the trauma that one has experienced. The children would join such therapeutic programs as well for them to help learn those basic skills and so that they can also form those healthy relationships with caregivers and their peers.
Also, there is that foster care in Children’s Hope Residential Services. Such foster children are assisted to cope with the trauma and for them to be able to heal. There are so many children who got neglected or abused and they are no longer able to trust others because of such experience. With the help of functional and healthy parenting and through the peer relationships, then this program could definitely help them gain back the trust in others once more.
There are also the day treatment programs that would help the children who require more care as well as support than the outpatient program but don’t require such residential care. The children in such kind of program will have to join in participating in the psycho-educational groups that would teach those coping skills, the drug education and also stress management and the weekly individual therapy sessions and those psychiatrist evaluations.
There are the aftercare services as well. The Children’s Hope Residential services would actually offer the aftercare services to those families and children who have already completed the program. Such services are being offered to those individuals in the community who may participate in the family, group and also the individual therapy sessions.
Connecting with communities through the programs offered by such organization would surely help a lot of individuals out there who have suffered and been through a lot of things in their life. The program and the organization has really helped so many children who got traumatized from their harsh experiences in life. It is best that the children who were suffering from those traumatic experiences be sent and go through the programs in order for them to heal and be able to live a normal life as a child.
