Our September Jeans BeCause recipient is St. Vincent Home for Children. The mission at St. Vincent Home for Children (SVHC) is to provide love, security and professional treatment for troubled children and their families through a fully integrated program of services. They provide a safe and caring community where troubled adolescents have life changing opportunities that build character, self-respect and coping skills to reach their highest potential. The foundation of their efforts is the desire to always provide the help to all those who reach out in need. Programs at SVHC include LifeFOCUS, a short-term, residential treatment program for youth between 10 and 19 years of age who have severe behavioral or emotional challenges. LifeRECOVER serves the same age group assessed as having substance abuse or substance dependence diagnoses. InHomeFOCUS is a brief outpatient therapy program for children between the ages of 8 and 19 and their families. The goal of InHomeFOCUS therapy is to work to resolve emotional, behavioral and relationship issues that create barriers to client success at home and at school.
