Jonathan’s Place is licensed by the State of Texas and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to operate a Girls Residential Therapeutic Program. We provide long-term residential care to girls ranging in age from 10 – 17 that require a higher level of therapeutic care than the children in our Emergency Shelter. The girls in our care have suffered from various forms of abuse and face insurmountable odds of recovering without continuous, dedicated care.
Each of the girls receives support from program staff, case managers, psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists. They also attend Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) program classes to learn how to function responsibly and independently in all areas of their lives.
How the Girls Residential Therapeutic Program is Funded
The State of Texas provides reimbursement for each night a child stays at Jonathan’s Place. Unfortunately, that only covers roughly 60% of the cost to care for each child. Jonathan’s Place counts on the generosity of the community in order to provide counseling and other specialized services to help children cope with the multiple traumas they’ve experienced.
Jonathan’s Place is focused on normalcy for all children in our care. In order to accomplish this for the girls in long-term care, we encourage them to participate in extracurricular activities, school events, first dates, social outings and so much more. Your donations will help with the additional costs not covered by the State of Texas.
