Our Mission

Our mission is to restore hope through teaching and healing to ensure youth, young adults, and their families thrive.

We help young people across Virginia with emotional and behavioral health concerns by facilitating the healing process using a relationship-based, cognitive-behavioral approach.

The trauma-informed care youth receive in our group homes, independent living apartments, specialized K-12 school (John G. Wood), and therapeutic resource center restores hope to them and their families who then find the courage to thrive.
