  • Description
  • The Hillside Connections Program was developed as a Treatment Foster Care Program to meet the needs of children between the ages of 5 and 21 with emotional and behavioral challenges. Many of these children have chaotic childhood experiences with little or no exposure to stable family environments and thus need an opportunity to learn family living skills. Children and their caregivers will have an opportunity to tell their story and talk about their strengths and needs with Hillside’s Connections staff. These strengths and needs will be taken into consideration when looking to see if our program has a family that matches these needs. Once the children are in the Connections Program they will have an opportunity to visit with the chosen family and develop a relationship during a pre-placement process to determine if the child and family are a good match for each other. A team is developed to monitor the success of the placement, also a specific staff will work with them on skills needed to regulate emotions, crisis intervention skills, and develop independent living skills. Community based mental health agencies will be targeted to address therapeutic needs for emotional and behavioral problems. Also staff will advocate for any educational needs and develop a plan for success towards completion of high school. This treatment team will meet regularly to develop goals to continue to work towards the child’s success.
