You DO Make a Difference

Each year, our clinical team evaluates the adolescents that have arrived and left the residential programs. This is done through through the Child And Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS) CAFAS creates a standard for us to assess a youth’s day-to-day functioning across critical life subscales AND  determine whether a youth’s functioning improves over time.

It is also a good outcome measurement of how your support helps to create a positive future for the teens we serve. These are the outcomes for 2023:

  • 37 youth who were assessed at intake and at discharge. (This number doesn’t represent the total number served but those who entered and left the program in 2023. We have additional adolescents that were not been discharge within 2023 and are still being served.)
  • The average score for these youth at intake was 134 and at discharge was 83. The difference between average youth score at intake and discharge was 51 points. Lower scores demonstrate improvement.
  • Domains measured are functioning at school or work; functioning in the home; functioning in the community; behavior toward others; mood state; self-harming behavior; substance use; and thinking.
  • 81% of the youth demonstrated improvement on one or more outcome indicators.
  • 73% of the youth demonstrated meaningful and reliable improvement in CAFAS Total Score of 20 points or greater.

NASCAR Driver for a day!

Enjoy a package for two that provides classroom training AND the ability to drive real NASCAR Monster Energy Cup cars on a professional superspeedway track (Atlanta or Charlotte Motor Speedways).

There is no lead car to follow and no instructor riding with you. Personal racing instructors communicate with you using 2-way radio racing electronics, as well as be your spotter, coaching you during the racing sessions and helping you achieve fast speeds safely. Passing is allowed — pass the slower cars as you catch them, putting the pedal to the metal and seeing if you have what it takes to be a NASCAR driver!
