QRTP – Agency Boarding Homes
The goal of the Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP) is to provide each youth with an opportunity to strengthen their ability for close interpersonal relationships within a home setting and a neighborhood; to develop skills for independent living and to survive the adolescent identity crisis with people who are able to provide more intensive help when it is needed. Each off-campus home has direct care staff who provide daily guidance and supervision. Staff regularly interact with school personnel, transport youth to family visits, and teach independent living skills. Youth in these homes receive counseling and training to develop the skills needed for independent living or to return home.
