We provide positive and enriching respite care to children when they need a break from their typical routines or their primary caregivers are unavailable. It’s our goal that the young people we serve look forward to respite and visit routinely as needed. Our Children Crisis Residential Units are comprehensive, short-term treatment alternative to in-patient hospitalization for children ages five to seventeen. At Beacon, we believe in a family-focused program to promote personal growth, hope, and recovery.
These services are a 24/7/365 model program that promotes personal growth, hope, and family-focused recovery. Services are designed for a subset of Individuals who meet psychiatric in-patient admission criteria or are at risk of admission, but who can be appropriately served in settings less intensive than a hospital. The goal of crisis residential services is to facilitate reduction in the intensity of those factors that lead to crisis residential admission through a person-centered and recovery/resiliency-oriented approach.
