RB-SCL (Residential Based Supported Community Living)

Children and Young Adult Living Environment
Hope Haven’s residential treatment program is a highly respected RBSCL treatment center. Children in the residential program come to Hope Haven from counties throughout Iowa and have typically had a number of psychiatric hospitalizations and other treatment experiences. They are in need of intensive mental health services, close medical monitoring, and a highly structured and safe environment.

Hope Haven seeks to meet all of the childrens needs with individualized person-centered treatment and services through a holistic multidisciplinary approach to psychological care.  We establish a collaborative effort with in-house and community providers, assisting the children and young adults in reclaiming control of their lives and finding new hope for their future. It assists in working with their families to reintegrate these children and young adults into their communities. 

Licensed by the Iowa Department of Human Services
The children and young adult residential program is licensed by the state. The RBSCL home are licensed residential programs for children 8-21.  We specialize in supporting children and young adults with complex developmental, behavioral and intellectual disabilities. Many of these individuals also have mental health or medical conditions. Hope Haven offers a nurturing, compassionate, home like, structured residential program for children and young adults. The goal is to return individuals to their own families as quickly as possible. However, if they are unable to return home we teach them the skills to become independent and reach their goals. They learn social skills and independent living skills. They attend local school and even though they aren’t living with their parents, they are a major part of the treatment team.  Our goal is to help the young adults become a productive part of the community and able to display acceptable behaviors in society.

Person-Centered Planning
We work with individuals and their families to create the life they want, with as much choice and independence as possible. Individuals learn self-care, social skills, self-advocacy, and work skills. Individuals and their families will feel empowered as they face challenging situations, overcome difficult hurdles and learn to encourage accountability and responsibility, all with guidance and care from Hope Haven.
