The House has been changing children's lives since 1872.

Residential Treatment Facility (RTF)

Providing safe, supportive, individualized care is our goal to make their time in care short, but impactful!

Responding to trauma and mental illness is hard for anyone- it is especially challenging through the eyes of a child. The RTF is a treatment program that is driven by the family for the child. We work with families and help them to assist in the stabilization and treatment of their child who may be suffering from extreme trauma and mental health issues.

The RTF has onsite mental health and psychiatric services as well as around the clock medical services. Most youth who reside in this program attend our on-campus Tilton School. We are proud of the work we are doing to ensure our youth are only visiting us, while still engaging and preparing for a return to residing with their families. We have staff on hand that has experience in raising youth with significant needs that are available to help guide our families through this process.
