We believe that all families must have the opportunity to demonstrate their capacity and have the desire to do what is best for their children. However, life circumstances may require specific training and supports to promote effective functioning.
Timber Ridge School is ready to partner with other agencies to promote permanence for at-risk youth.
We provide a service that is not contrary or adversarial to permanence, but rather a part of a continuum of care for seriously disturbed adolescent young men and their families. Timber Ridge School may serve as the least restrictive and most effective treatment option.
Provides child care agencies, the juvenile court system, educational localities and other child focused agencies with a thorough understanding of a youth, who is either new to their agency, or has been unsuccessful with less intensive services.
Residential placement occurs due to a combination of the adolescents individual needs, family dynamics, and available supportive/therapeutic services available in the community that are not being successful.
