The Gallagher and Francetich Children’s Homes are therapeutic homes for young children, ages four to 14, who have experienced significant early childhood trauma—abuse, neglect, exposure to family violence, multiple placements outside of their birth families and/or homelessness.
We offer relationship-based care, providing healing through a relational/development approach that emphasizes the building of healthy relationships through safety, predictability and consistency.
Families are involved in treatment as appropriate, and recruitment of kinship or foster/adoptive families for those children whose families are no longer involved.
Emphasis is placed on helping children feel safe, build healthy relationships, develop trust in the care and control of safe adults, learn regulation skills, and cultivate a healthy sense of self.
