"Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story." - Josh Shipp


Trauma-Informed Care is a Best Practice treatment philosophy that incorporates an appreciation for the high prevalence of traumatic experiences in children who receive mental health services. The course in treatment requires a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma on a child and all members of the treatment team must work closely together and be consistent in their interactions with the children. The training of the staff members is intensive to ensure their knowledge, sensitivity, compassion and understanding that each child is desperately in search of someone who will value them and love them for who they are.

The Ranch of Opportunity offers a peaceful, spacious, and healthy environment for girls aged 13 to 18 that have experienced trauma to live, learn, and grow during a 6-8 month residential treatment program. Its mission is to create new chances, new choices, and new hope for traumatized children and their families by breaking the vicious cycle of child abuse and addressing the self-destructive behaviors brought on by experiencing severe trauma in childhood.

Northcutt Residential Treatment Center provides a safe, healing environment for elementary school-aged boys who have experienced abuse and neglect, exhibit severe emotional and behavioral issues or have been in and out of local school or juvenile systems. Services are grounded in the philosophy of Trauma-Informed Care, which has demonstrated positive outcomes for victims of trauma. Using a multi-disciplinary team approach, we wrap services around the child and family to help them heal, and to transition back to home, school, and the community.

The Heritage of Hannah Neil Program is anticipating that renovations will be complete on the residential wing this fall. The program will offer services to approximately 40 young children in need of residential care. Renovations are under way in order to create a more natural and home-like setting. The artistic and creative feel of the entire facility lends itself to an encouraging and healing environment, where these children can feel safe and supported.
