GIRLS IN OUR PROGRAM

HGR provides long-term care for girls struggling with mental, emotional and behavioral problems, as well as girls who have experienced trauma including commercial sexual exploitation/trafficking. HGR referrals typically come from county social workers/probation officers and include; Delinquency, CHIPS, and Voluntary Placements. HGR also accepts county placement referrals of trafficked girls through our Hearts for Freedom Program. 

Each referral is considered on an individual basis for their situation and the current population of residents being served. HGR does accept residents who are known or suspected to be pregnant. HGR is unable to accept residents who are actively psychotic, actively suicidal, or who are a significant danger to themselves or others. 

Some of the target areas of programming may include strategies to address:

  •     Runaway
  •     Truancy
  •     Sexual Behaviors
  •     Sexual Exploitation/Sex Trafficking
  •     PTSD/ Trauma
  •     Chemical Use/ Dependency
  •     Attachment Problems

A specialized treatment plan is created with specific objectives for each resident. These goals cover a wide range of topics including education, behavior, attitudes, relationships, family and personal struggles, health, recreation, social skills, future plans and employment. Average lengths of stay vary for each resident.
