The philosophy of Raintree House is to provide quality services to adolescent females between the ages of 11 to 18 years old. Raintree House offers more restrictions than a foster home, but less restrictions than a residential facility or hospital. All transfers of participants are done in conjunction with the the Department of Children and Family Services.
Parents or legal guardians are encouraged to participate in the planning and treatment of each participant, unless contraindicated in the treatment plan. Participants are paired with a treatment plan at intake and the plan is updated quarterly. Raintree House is designed to provide a safe, nurturing, consistent home for adolescent girls in need of placement outside of their homes. Our goal is to provide a complete service approach to participants and their families, and to assist the participant’s return to her family or when she becomes of age, enter into an Independent Living Program.
