Building On Foundational Principles
The program for girls at Heritage teaches teens to respect themselves, respect others, and increase self-esteem and self-efficacy. Through personalized therapy, best-in-class residential care, and purposefully planned activities, girls at Heritage reduce negative behaviors because they understand their intrinsic values.
Developing Healthy Relationships
Success at Heritage is built on the relationship concepts that have been pioneered and mastered by the certified Heritage staff. In our girls’ program, direct care family mentors are selected, trained, and certified in the Heritage relationship method for establishing consistent, effective interactions with healthy boundaries and consequences. As they build strong relationships, girls learn to trust themselves and others.
Becoming Healthy Family Members
Students live in a home-like environment with 10 to 12 girls of their age supervised 24/7 by family mentors under the direction of a Home Director and two Home Leads. These family mentors are the parent figures of the home. It is in the Heritage Homes that students learn healthy living habits, respect, discipline and responsibility.
Discovering New Interests
The Heritage community provides a wide range of sports, outdoor and recreational activities. Girls are able to discover new interests and develop their talents as they participate in biking, hiking, skiing, rafting, team sports, as well as performing arts. In addition, they participate in age-appropriate coed activities to develop social skills.
Achieving New Heights
At Heritage adolescents develop abilities to live a more productive life. Heritage empowers students with the role models, skills, and tools to succeed in school and in life. Heritage students are prepared to continue their education, live a healthy lifestyle, and obtain employment. Parents and families reconnect with the daughter they thought they had lost. Students are prepared to launch themselves as young adults and community members ready for a productive life.
