Residential Treatment

Overview

At MCHS, our residential program has been serving youth for more than 103 years. Our 80-acre campus in Redford is home to 60 boys between the ages of 5
and 18 who arrive at MCHS searching for the hope,
love, safety and support every child deserves.
After transitioning from home to home, averaging
five times in two and a half years, the boys who enter
our care are hoping for a chance to enjoy their childhoods while also healing from the immense
trauma they have endured.

At MCHS, our residential program has been serving youth for more than 113 years. Our 80-acre campus in Redford is home to 60 boys between the ages of 5 and 18.

Our youth live, learn, grow and play on campus as it serves as “home” until they find the permanency of a loving family. Each of our cottages are complete with 10 individual and private rooms for each child, two living areas, a full kitchen and dining room where children dine family-style. The cottages are just a few steps away from other programs and activities including on-grounds education, gymnasium, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, movie/game room, a dedicated activities cottage and so much more!

At MCHS, it is our job to treat, heal and prepare youth for the futures they deserve. Since 2017, MCHS has been on a five-year strategic plan to implement a Trauma-informed Care (TIC) model which involves a paradigm shift and changes in the way we communicate, utilize therapy and interact with youth. Part of TIC means eliminating physical restraints, a common practice used at residential treatment facilities in an effort to deescalate a child from harming himself or others. For so many of youth, MCHS is the only reprieve from an abusive past. We owe it to our children and to our community to stop the cycle of re-traumatizing children. In 2020, MCHS became the first residential treatment program in the midwest to become restraint-free!”. We continue our journey toward a true trauma-informed model of care, creating brighter futures for each child in our residential treatment program.
