Youth Residential Treatment Program (STRTP)

Foster youth—many of whom are medically fragile or have a serious medical condition—receive nurturing, highly structured, round-the-clock care in Wayfinder’s youth residential treatment program. This short-term residential therapeutic program offers youth a therapeutic setting and caring support so they can overcome their challenges and thrive. We provide intensive, individualized mental health and nursing services to ensure their physical and emotional well-being. The program is licensed to provide dynamic, multi-dimensional treatment and support.

Children and youth ages 5 to 17 who have varying levels of developmental, medical, physical and behavioral challenges.
