From St. Jude's Website...
“Individual treatment plans, a homelike environment and highly trained staff all help each child gain success. Many ... come to us after multiple foster home placements – sometimes after as many as eight to twelve – and some arrive two years behind academically because their caregivers simply forgot to send them to school… staff and on-campus tutoring programs help them catch up with their classmates. Religious participation is voluntary and spiritual guidance and support is always available. Children receive individual therapy and participate in family therapy with their siblings.
“One of the distinct features of the program is the ability to care for sibling groups- brothers and sisters who often have never lived together. Many times all the brothers and sisters have left is each other. While residents of the Ranch, they see each other every day. They go to school together. They play together. Just like other kids. Just like brothers and sisters.
