Adolescent Residential

Working to end the cycle of trauma, abuse and homelessness among young women.

This Adolescent Residential Treatment program at The Center for Great Expectations provides mental health treatment to pregnant or parenting women between the ages of 13 and 20 — and their children (up to age 5). Even at this young age, many in this program have already experienced childhood trauma, including physical or sexual violence, homelessness and poverty.

    We’re helping people thrive and lead fulfilling lives. We’re teaching them how to build great attachments with their children. To break the cycle and keep families together.

    Coming here was an hour and a half away. But it was something I had to deal with in order to stay with my son. Because no foster home wanted me and my son together.
