Keeping Children Safe and Families Together
When a teen first gets into trouble, it can be the beginning of a downward spiral, one that parents or guardians are sometimes ill equipped to halt. Often, a short stay away from home and negative peers, with intensive support from professionals, can turn things around.
The Children’s Village’s Dobbs Ferry campus provides short-term residential programs for more than 1,000 children and youth annually. This campus, which is located just 35 minutes from New York City, includes 180 acres of rolling hills an d woods, a state-of-the-art recreation center with an indoor pool, a 24/7 medical clinic, a K to 12 New York State school, and a full staff of clinical professionals. In addition, various supports like our Mentoring, Chapel, and work training programs provide youth with endless opportunities for success.
