The decision to place a child in residential care is not an easy one for the child or the guardians. However, sometimes it is necessary to provide the child with the comprehensive therapeutic support he or she needs to overcome crisis. KidsPeace’s residential campuses provide essential food, clothing and education along with intensive therapy, life skills training, vocational training and therapeutic recreation – all in an atmosphere that simulates the warmth and comfort of home.

KidsPeace programs include state-of-the-art-counseling and therapeutic services that use art, music, recreation, puppetry and drama to encourage creativity and expression, which in turn help to promote healing and restore a child’s belief in his ability to triumph over adversity and become healthy and whole again.

“KidsPeace Therapeutic Interventions are Evidenced Based including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). The KidsPeace Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Department utilizes an evidenced based approach devoted to both understanding and improving our client’s behavior. Every client’s ABA involvement is individualized based on their presenting behaviors of concern. KidsPeace has a team of analysts in each of our three residential centers who are overseen by a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst.”

KidsPeace’s therapeutic recreation facilities include baseball and soccer fields, a swimming pool, a gymnasium, running tracks, sledding hills for winter fun, a ropes course and other recreational activities that allow children to simply be kids.
