About Residential Program
The Residential Program offers a comprehensive care and service program for New Hampshire children and families. The program consists of four distinct residences for children between the ages of 6 and 18 years. The two latency-aged residences and the two adolescent residences each provide supervision and guidance for up to twelve children.
The Residential Program offers a wide range of recreational and social activities on and off grounds. Children are encouraged to utilize the community’s recreational and cultural resources.
Family involvement is essential to the success of this program. Family participation, visits and community connections are the prime indicators of successful family reunification. Home visits are encouraged to the fullest extent possible. Reunification efforts with families are assisted by the continued involvement of Residential Program staff for a minimum of 90 days post-discharge.
Joint residential/educational placements are available; however, many youngsters attend public school. An organized liaison program ensures that regular communication with public school personnel is maintained and that concerns are attended to quickly and effectively.
The Adolescent Boys Residence is located at 86 Concord Street with the other three residences at 125 Amherst Street.
The Carriage House at 86 Concord Street, and the property at 119 Amherst Street serve as “Independent Living Homes,” preparing youth, ages 16+, for the challenges of adult living.
