Our Group Care Intensive Services / Level 3 home provides 24-hour awake care for children and adolescents who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect, significant behavioral problems, or family disruption. We provide for all basic needs for boys and girls ranging in age from 10 to 21 years in four living units.  We care for approximately 10 girls and 30 boys in this GCIS program.

Through a nurturing approach, counselors foster and model healthy relationships with the children. The children also continue to attend school and be involved in intensive counseling as well as recreational, social, and spiritual activities to help them continue their growth and maturation in preparation for return to family, adoption, or placement in a foster home or less intensive group home setting.
