Residential Care Program

The Residential Care Program serves children ages 12-19. This program provides safe, structured care for adolescents who have a demonstrated history of behavioral problems that interfere with their functioning in community settings. The Residential Care Program assists children in improving their level of functioning while developing skills to help them move toward becoming positive members of their communities. The primary objective of CVCA's Residential Care Program is to successful reintegrate the child into his/her family and/or community. CVCA's Residential Care Program provides an integrated multi-disciplinary, team-based approach. The team includes representatives from education, cottage, social work, clinical and nursing departments as well as family members and the child.

 Residential Treatment Program

CVCA's Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) in Flourtown provides structured care for children and adolescents who have a demonstrated history of serious mental illness and behavioral problems. The RTF assists children in improving their level of functioning while developing skills to move towards positive membership in society. CVCA's RTF provides an integrated multi-disciplinary, team-based approach to treatment utilizing a trauma-informed resiliency model as the foundation for evidence-based service delivery. Treatment Team members include representatives from CVCA's clinical, psychiatric, educational, residential and nursing departments as well as family members and the child him/herself. CVCA's RTF serves up to 35 children, ages 12-19. The RTF includes Lower Beech Cottage, a co-educational residence for 22 children, 9 boys and 13 girls and Thistle Cottage, an all-female residence for 13 girls. RTF care is appropriate when prior interventions have been unsuccessful in keeping a child functioning safely in the community, yet higher levels of care are unnecessary. All children served by the RTF meet medical necessity for RTF services.
