STRTP will have two objectives: 1) to help youth permanently re-establish safe and nurturing family, educational, and community connections; and 2) to assist in establishing a new system of care that will prevent any more youth from reaching this point of disconnection.

The program is designed for youth and their families to remain connected after the client transitions from residential care using planned respite as needed while they are in their family-setting placements.

As part of Victor Treatment Centers, Rosemary Children’s Services owns and oper­ates four residential facilities that serve 33 at-risk female adolescent youth. The Cottage (home to fifteen), along with three residential facilities (home to six) provide safe and supportive environments for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18. All the residential facilities are located within the Pasadena and South Pasadena area. Each home is made up of a careful ratio of youth to staff. Staff are trained to meet the needs of the youth and help them grow towards becom­ing active and productive members of so­ciety. Youth are referred to these programs by counties and other public agencies as a result of being unable to thrive in less restrictive environments.

The girls are helped to heal and grow through the following extensive educational, therapeutic and recreational services:

  • Child care counselors provide 24-hour supervision for the adolescents girls. Counselors transport girls to school, assist with homework, and help with on-going related issues and concerns
  • Group Centered Leadership is a therapeutic technique and daily peer accountability group in which residents and caretakers gather to discuss positive and negative individual behaviors in a open forum.
  • Community involvement exposes the adolescents to cultural activities, such as museums and local symphonies, to help transition them into community life and aid in the growth of socialization and self-awareness.
