Connecting with Communities by Helping Others
It was Aldrich who founded the Children’s Hope Residential Services in the year 2002. This is a kind of a nonprofit organization that offers support and also care for those adolescents who were abused and also neglected. For those who are problems with the emotions and also their behaviors, they are actually put in such children’s protective services. When this was founded, that organization has helped over 2,000 children in Texas alone.
The residential life program is providing 24-hour care at three individual centers for treatment. 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 would actually make sure that each child is really taken care of and has that safe as well as supportive environment to process such trauma that they have encountered. Children would also join in those therapeutic programs in order to help them learn the basic skills and to be able to form such healthy relationships with the peers as well as the caregivers.
There is also foster care in the 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. By healthy as well as functional parenting and also with the help of peer relationships, such program would help in rebuilding such trust in every child.
Moreover, there are such day treatment programs that would certainly help the children who require more care as well as support unlike the outpatient program but will not require such residential care. Such children in this type of program must join those psycho-educational groups which teach the coping skills, drug education and that stress management and also such weekly individual therapy sessions and also those psychiatrist evaluations too.
There are the aftercare services as well. The Children’s Hope Residential Services would certainly offer those aftercare services to the families and the children who have already finished such program. Such services are being offered to the individuals in the community who are going to join in the family, group and such individual therapy sessions.
In connecting with communities, the many programs offered by this organization would aid in the healing of the children who were suffering so much even in their young years. Such organization and the programs that it offers would surely help a lot of children out there who were having a traumatic experience. 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.
