Level 3 Group Care

WANDO RIVER:  A LEVEL 3  GROUP HOME

This program offers direct care, mentoring and emotional support  in a structured but homelike setting .We offer therapeutic interventions,  education, and residential programming  for boys with social, emotional, learning and behavioral challenges. Our residential program  is a unique, multi-faceted therapeutic program designed to give every child a chance to succeed academically, socially and emotionally. We provide 24-hour supervision and support to ensure children’s safety within a therapeutic milieu that allows each child to participate in an array of beneficial activities as part of their individualized care plan. Our residential therapeutic programs help children maximize their potential through strong academics, recreational and clinical interventions, and positive relationships with peers, adults and nature.

Licensed by DSS  to provide this service for up to 15 boys, we provide therapeutic interventions, medication management,  behavior supports,and character building experiences through a variety of therapeutic and experiential activities. The boys learn to respect themselves and to accept responsibility for the behaviors they display and the choices they make.  While here they will learn age- appropriate social and communication skills, acquire the ability to resolve conflicts and to manage their anger, and learn to extinguish the disruptive behavior patterns that prevented them from  leading successful lives.
