5 Lessons Learned: Communities

How to Help Others by Connecting with Communities

It was Aldrich who founded the Children’s Hope Residential Services in the year 2002. This kind of nonprofit organization provides the support and also the care for those adolescents who were neglected and those who were also abused. They are put in the children’s protective services especially for those who were struggling with their behaviors and emotions. Since such started operating, this organizations has taken care of over 2,000 children in Texas.

Such residential life program actually offers 24-hour care at three different treatment centers. You should know that each center has such specialized care team which would include the health care professionals, the direct care counselors, administrative staff, case managers and also the therapists. 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. The foster children are helped in coping with their trauma and help them 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. 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 those individuals in the community who may participate in the family, group and also the individual therapy sessions.

When it comes to connecting with communities, this can be done through the programs provided by the organization that could help a lot of children who went through hell in life. The program and the organization has really helped so many children who got traumatized from their harsh experiences in life. If you know a child who has gone through such traumatic experience, then it would be great that you send that child to this organization for one to be assisted in healing.
