Saint Vincent’s Intensive Treatment Residence (ITR) provides an on-campus congregate care setting for children, ages 4 to 21, with a focus on the development of age-appropriate skills. The program provides a therapeutic, goal-directed alternative for children who require a high level of supervision, behavioral support, and structure to develop the skills necessary for successful community re-integration.
While residing in the ITR setting, children attend school within the community, including public school, special education, or collaborative programs. Staff members work closely with family members and community resources with the goal of reunification, whenever possible. Each child’s clinical care manager serves as the liaison with families, collaterals, and providers to ensure both timely and accurate reporting of treatment information. The clinical care manager also addresses educational advocacy issues and supports parents, educational surrogate parents, and others to ensure the proper educational placement for those children requiring special education programming..
