Connects is a residential, experiential-based, short-term treatment program that averages three to six months in duration. Individual and family therapy are offered in conjunction with residential programming and in-home family support directed at reintegrating children back into their biological families or an alternative family setting (e.g. kinship care, foster care or adoptive placement).

Connects helps families cope with behavioral difficulties that make conditions at home or in the community unsafe for the child or family. All program components are treatment focused and intentional. Connects works from a strength-based approach to stabilize challenging behaviors, teach effective parenting skills and reestablish a positive family culture.
