Children Are Really Extra Special
The C.A.R.E.S. Program at St. Francis Medical Center is an acute partial hospitalization program for children ages 3-14 years of age, outpatient program for children ages 3-21 years of age, CARES also has a Pediatric Nursery Partial Day Program for children ages 3 & 4. Our mission is to provide a high quality mental health diagnosis and intensive, compassionate treatment to children that are having difficulty succeeding, despite familial and community supports as their emotional and or behavioral difficulties impede their ability to function well in a social or home environment.
Children may be referred to the program by their school, outpatient agencies, inpatient children’s unit, DYFS, and the families themselves. All referrals are made to the Program Director.
The staff at the CARES Program are a multidisciplinary team consisting of master level clinicians, bachelor level counselors, a registered nurse, and a child and adolescent psychiatrist. All children receive daily academic instruction, daily group therapy, weekly individual therapy, and weekly family therapy. Upon admission all children receive a psychiatric evaluation.
Our team members are committed to providing the children and their families with the tools they need to cope and to manage the challenges they are facing in their lives in a respectful, supportive, and nurturing environment. Door- to door transportation and meals are provided for the children.
