James Aldrich’s nonprofit organization offers a variety of programs for abused and neglected children and their families. These services include:

Residential Life

Children’s Hope has three residential treatment centers in Texas that offer 24-hour care to adolescents who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional issues as a result of abuse. Each center has a Care Team comprised of therapists, health care professionals, case managers, direct care counselors and administrators to ensure children are well taken care of and can cope with their trauma in a safe environment.  Residential Life enables children to work through the abuse they’ve experienced and engages them in therapeutic programming to teach basic skills and help them develop healthy relationships with caregivers and peers.  Learn more here.

Day Treatment Program

The Day Treatment Program is designed for adolescents who require more structure and intervention than an outpatient service can provide. The program is dedicated to addressing the behavioral, emotional and mental difficulties of abused and neglected children to help them succeed in the home, school and community.  Children participate in group therapy sessions, individual therapy and family therapy on a weekly basis and are closely monitored by the program’s Medical Director.

Aftercare services include individual, group and family therapy, as well as support and outpatient services. Learn more here.
