How to Help Others by Connecting with Communities
It was Aldrich who founded the Children’s Hope Residential Services in the year 2002. This is a kind of a nonprofit organization that offers support and also care for those adolescents who were abused and also neglected. They are being placed in children’s protective services who are struggling with the emotional as well as behavioral problems. When this was founded, that organization has helped over 2,000 children in Texas alone.
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 would actually make sure that each child is really taken care of and has that safe as well as supportive environment to process such trauma that they have encountered. Children would also join in those therapeutic programs in order to help them learn the basic skills and to be able to form such healthy relationships with the peers as well as the caregivers.
Also, there is that foster care in Children’s Hope Residential Services. The foster children are actually assisted so that they will be able to cope with the trauma and for their healing as well. There are a lot of those who got neglected or were abused and they have lost the trust in other people. 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.
Moreover, there are such day treatment programs that would certainly help the children who require more care as well as support unlike the outpatient program but will not require such residential care. The children in such kind of program will have to join in participating in the psycho-educational groups that would teach those coping skills, the drug education and also stress management and the weekly individual therapy sessions and those psychiatrist evaluations.
There are the aftercare services as well. The Children’s Hope Residential services would actually offer the aftercare services to those families and children who have already completed the program. Such services are being offered to the individuals in the community who are going to join in the family, group and such individual therapy sessions.
Connecting with communities through the programs offered by such organization would surely help a lot of individuals out there who have suffered and been through a lot of things in their life. Such program and organization has certainly assisted a lot of those children who were feeling traumatized because of the negative experiences that they have had. Well, when you know someone who has gone through such trauma and experience, then it would be best that you introduce them to such program for them to be able to cope and recover from such negative experience.
