The Residential Treatment program at DePelchin treats foster children struggling with severe mental, emotional or behavioral problems that inhibit normal functioning in a family setting. The purpose of the program is to help the youth develop the coping methods, internal control and social skills they need to transition back into a home environment.
DePelchin’s Transitioning to Adulthood through Guidance and Support (TAGS) Program seeks to provide a safe, stable environment for homeless young adults, ages 18-22, who have aged out of the child welfare system. In addition to offering temporary residence, the TAGS Program provides youths the opportunities, knowledge and skills necessary to mature into productive, responsible adults capable of becoming independent.
DePelchin Children’s Center will offer a Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program and Residential Treatment Program for older youth aging out of foster care.
Our programs at Today’s Harbor a DePelchin Children’s Center Campus are intended to create a holistic approach to caring for at- risk youths while providing a safe and nurturing environment for everyone receiving services.
Our approach is based on education, individualized case management, mental health, wellness, and preparation for living independently.
