Proven Therapeutic Model
Kansas City House of Hope is affiliated with National House of Hope and uses a proven model, which has produced a high rate of completion nationwide. Responsibility is earned and tested as the girls work through multiple program phases. Upon completion of orientation, the teen moves into a three-phase program that rewards better choices during an average stay of 9-12 months. Residents participate in individual and group counseling sessions weekly with a licensed counselor.
Troubled teenagers are usually unable to respond properly to authority figures and cannot relate constructively to peers. To deal with these problems, House of Hope provides a loving, stable family environment in which residents are expected to accept responsibility, submit to authority and relate effectively to peers and adults. This is supported through intensive group, family and individual counseling and spiritual guidance designed to heal fractured family relationships. Daily devotions, prayer and scripture memorization are used to inspire spiritual development.
Your teen daughter will live with staff members and other residents in a beautifully restored home, where she will be treated like a family member. We are licensed by the State of Kansas as a group home facility, and provide 24-hour, on-site staff supervision. Guided by strong Christian principles, residents learn responsibility, accountability and community service through chores like cooking meals and doing laundry, volunteering in the urban core, and taking mission trips to impoverished areas like Trinidad and Haiti. This is all in addition to our individualized academic program, counseling and parent visitations.
Parents participate in family and individual counseling sessions, in-person and online, designed to heal fractured relationships. As a parent, you are expected to be fully engaged in the process and attend weekly scheduled counseling sessions, in-person and online, as well as a weekly parenting class, in-person and online, where you can find more help and support. House of Hope Kansas City requires parental involvement through in-person and online counseling, visitations and parenting classes.
For boys and girls not requiring residential care, there is outpatient counseling based on the same family-centered approach. Please call us at (913) 262-8885 to learn more about outpatient counseling.
