The nine-bed, co-ed Rainbow of Hope Psychiatric Community Home in Woodbine, NJ, treats children ages 11 to 17 with serious behavioral and emotional health issues. A voluntary placement for youngsters following psychiatric hospitalization, the nonprofit NJ facility holds accreditation from the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and a license to operate from the State of New Jersey Department of Children and Families. Medicaid provides the funding for Rainbow of Hope, which maintains good relationships with the state’s Division of Child Protection and Permanency, youth case management programs, and family support and care management organizations.
A typical stay at Rainbow of Hope lasts six to nine months. The program includes family and individual therapy, with the goal of returning children home to pursue their dreams. The annual cost in a state residential center in NJ averages $190,000, while the annual total to house and treat children at Rainbow of Hope amounts to $140,000, making the option both valuable and cost effective. The facility maintains an affiliation with Cape Counseling Services, which endeavors to assist consumers in reaching their greatest potential through superior, holistic, state-of-the-art behavioral health care that remains responsive to the needs of the community.
Rainbow of Hope’s goal-oriented and strength-based approach helps adolescents become productive members of society. Abused by a “family friend,” one 14-year-old boy arrived at the NJ residential home after attacking a teacher’s aide. He possessed a history of behaving aggressively and injuring himself. After five months of intensive therapy, the young man learned to manage his anger, express his frustrations, and build more meaningful relationships. While not providing a magical cure that eliminated the memory of the abuse, the treatment at Rainbow of Hope enabled him to move in with a supportive grandmother and begin to experience life’s joys again.
