Baltimore Campus – Residential Services
The Baltimore Campus provides residential services for up to 85 children and youth, ages 9 to 20. Residents are given therapeutic and academic support to help them overcome emotional and behavioral issues and function responsibly in the community.
Included in the Baltimore Residential Program is a Semi-Independent Living Program offered to residents, ages 15 to 20, who demonstrate academic achievement and post-education goals, program success and clinical participation.
HOUSING AND FACILITIES
Youth in the residential program live in five cottages, each containing 10 single rooms. Youth in the Semi-Independent Living Program live in seven houses, each with five single rooms.
Also on campus are the agency headquarters administrative and clinical building, an activity center, dining hall, conference center, welcome center, chapel and the Strawbridge School.
Clinically, all residents undergo assessments when admitted and treatment goals, objectives and interventions are developed. Every effort is made to include families in the process.
Recreationally, youth participate in structured sports, fitness and club activities to increase self-esteem, physical health and trust of peers and adults. The recreation facility includes an indoor gymnasium, fitness room, heated outdoor pool, baseball and soccer fields, basketball and volleyball courts and an adventure-based ropes course.
Spiritually, residents may engage in Christian-oriented services, including weekly chapel services, vespers, Bible study, baptism and community service. The youth are permitted to attend denominational services off-campus, if therapeutically appropriate.
Baltimore campus residents either continue to attend their home school or school of origin, local Baltimore County zoned schools, or the on-campus Strawbridge School. Strawbridge offers a Type III transitional education program and a Type I program that serves regular and special education students primarily with emotional and behavioral disabilities.
A multi-disciplinary professional team provides behavioral health and therapeutic supports. The staff includes a physician/psychiatrist, therapists, social workers, recreational specialists, certified teachers and registered nurses.
