Healing Homes For Children Day Care Reviews
My son was 16 years old and he was placed here by social services. This is not a day care! There are people there overseeing the kids and they don't do anything else. There's no therapy or counseling. My son didn't get any therapy or counseling. It's like a holding spot till they find someplace else for them. He went to rehab after this, and unfortunately he did not survive. Why is this called a day care?
I'd have to agree that Healing Homes is not a good place for a kid to end up in. While they may do OK when they are at Healing Homes it all falls apart on a few months after returning as they do not work with the families. It is basically a holding pen.
I guess I don't understand how they get away with not offering family counseling when issues in the family can be a big part of the problem.
Thank goodness when our kid starting slipping again we were able to find a much better place that offered family counseling, 4H programs, a onsite school if needed and even horse therapy. At the initial interview they made it clear that the family was expected to work with them once a week. Family therapy and participation was a requirement if there was a family still involved in their life. If this place could offer all of that, it kind makes one wonder why Healing Homes can't. Both places fall under the same type of provider - group home, so I am sure they get paid similar amounts of money for each boy
Healing Homes isn't really a day care it is a group home, thou at times I think that is how they operate as an s a day care center, not a place to help young men.
I had a relative go here and while he did OK (which does not say much for Healing Homes) while he was in there he came out with more problems than he went in with. They do not work with the families which is a mistake. They stir up all this emotion in these young men and do nothing to help resolve some of the problems that brought them there. They basically give you back a ticking time bomb. It would have been nice if they would have brought in their parents/guardians in to resolve issues that these young men feel but they don't. So all these issues which they worked on their become one sided and end up just festering inside them and exploded just a month or two after they are allowed to return.
While my relative was there which was 7 months they had one person fired and two possible three people quit. When going to progress reports one could see that there were problems between the Directory and some Staff members.
I also found out that someone I am actuated with had young man placed here and he did not fair much better.
They are basically a warehouse for young man, they do don't work with families. I would venture to guess there success rate is less that 25%. I would not send a dog there. On a score of 1 to 10 I'd give them a 2.
