Boys and Girls Haven provides 24-hour residential treatment and ancillary supportive services for children ages 11 to 18 who need, for a variety of reasons, out-of-home placement and a therapeutic setting to help them with emotional, behavioral (status offender level), and social adjustment difficulties. Two programs operate at Boys and Girls Haven—the long-term Therapeutic Care and Independent Living Program, and the Family Treatment program for middle-school-age children with an emphasis on family counseling and individual therapy. Residential treatment is provided for children who attend the on-site school program.

  • Population Served: Ages 11 to 18
  • Specific Characteristics: Students needing residential placement due to a troubled family life
  • Maximum Enrollment: 36
  • Average Length of Stay: Family Treatment Program—3 to 4 months, Independent Living Program—1 to 2 years
  • Boys and Girls Haven follows the JCPS school calendar and includes a summer program.

 

Boys and Girls Haven school is staffed by fully certified JCPS teachers who provide appropriate instruction to meet the academic and behavior deficits of their students. The goal of the school is to overcome those deficits in a risk-free academic environment and to address behavior issues when needed. Once the academic deficits have been identified and the instruction provided, the students return to the community school. Successful re-entry to a community school is the goal of the faculty and residential staff. Teachers work closely with the residential staff to provide seamless support for the students.

Referrals are made by families in crisis, social workers, and court recommendations.
