We believe that all children have the right to hope for success that will last them a lifetime. We are committed to nurturing resiliency, while ensuring that the children have the opportunities that being a kid should afford. Children should have access to a quality education and an opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities of their choice such as, music, sports, school groups and community involvement.
The services and support we provide are individualized, flexible and delivered in a Trauma- Informed manner that meets the unique needs of each child. We provide access to care that addresses mental health and behavioral symptoms in addition to education and intervention to successfully meet life’s challenges. The ultimate outcome is a resilient child.
Many children present with co-occurring mental health, behavioral, and substance abuse disorders that cannot be isolated and treated separately. For this reason, the program takes a holistic approach to treatment and wraps a continuum of specialized services around each child.
Another critical focus of Robin’s House is preparing the children for adulthood. We focus on providing the children with the necessary skills to become productive citizens. Our “Life Skills” program will include nutrition, cooking, budgeting, college exploration, career exploration and housing options, just to name a few. The children of Robin’s House will have the expectation of education first. Many of the children who come to us have moved multiple times and have to worry if they will eat today or if they will suffer abuse tonight. This results in education being difficult for them to focus on. We will ensure that the children have every available resource and support they need to be successful in pursuing their education.
Each of Robin’s Houses can provide care and support for a maximum of 5 children. We believe to meet our mission we need to provide as much individual attention in a safe and comfortable home as possible to our children.
