HAP provides safe, loving, skilled parental care in therapeutic homes for children who are victims of physical abuse,sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. Children ages 2-17 years old come to HAP after they have been removed from their own homes by the court system, because of the severity of the problems in their biological family.
In each of our HAP homes, a married couple or single person serves as highly trained Teaching-Parents. The heart of the program is the therapeutic daily-living interactions between the children and the Teaching-Parents.
HAP children, often for the first time in their lives, learn to live with structure, appropriate discipline, routine, responsibility, order, cleanliness, rules, encouragement, counseling, loving care and ultimately, hope.
