Sensitivity, Compassion and Understanding


Trauma-Informed Care is a Best Practice treatment philosophy that incorporates an appreciation for the high prevalence of traumatic experiences in children who receive mental health services. The course in treatment requires a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma on a child and all members of the treatment team must work closely together and be consistent in their interactions with the children. The training of the staff members is intensive to ensure their knowledge, sensitivity, compassion and understanding that each child is desperately in search of someone who will value them and love them for who they are.

The Ranch of Opportunity offers a peaceful, spacious, and healthy environment for girls aged 13 to 17 that have experienced trauma to live, learn, and grow during a 6-8 month residential treatment program. Its mission is to create new chances, new choices, and new hope for traumatized children and their families by breaking the vicious cycle of child abuse and addressing the self-destructive behaviors brought on by experiencing severe trauma in childhood.
