What We Do


Italian Home offers youth the building blocks to envision and strengthen their future.

With state-of-the-art therapies and around-the-clock nurturing, our goal is to reintegrate the youth back into their schools, families, and communities by giving them the tools to cope.

The continuum of programs at the Italian Home provide children with the opportunity to enter via one service with the possibility of being referred to and benefitting from many of the other programs offered. This continuity of care, integration of treatment approaches, and weaving of an array of mental health professionals is very beneficial to the overall improvement and health of the individual child.
