Individualized treatment plans are developed for each child during their stay at Children’s Hope.  Emphasis is placed on allowing each child the opportunity to work through the abuse and neglect they have experienced while engaging each child in therapeutic programming and participation in their community.  Each child that lives at Children’s Hope participates in therapeutic programming to teach them basic skills and to help them develop healthy relationships with their caregivers and peers.  Programming includes such things as:
