A Haven for Hope and Healing
- Sexual abuse that started before the age of five years old
- Witnessing acts of violence in the home
- Being taken away from the only home he has known and placed in multiple homes of strangers, all in a very short period of time
- Behind his peers in school, many times feeling and being called “dumb” or “stupid”
Dealing with these environments can cause a multitude of symptoms including, anxiety, sadness, anger, confusion, harmful acts to oneself and others, feelings of hopelessness, and thoughts of suicide. Any one of these situations would take an immeasurable amount of care and time to heal the emotional wounds inflicted by living through them.
Now, imagine one child dealing with all of the painful scenarios described? This is the actual case of one child helped by Cleveland Christian Home’s Residential Treatment Center.
Finally, can you imagine where this child would be today without help? Each child who comes to Cleveland Christian Home has their own story -and each one is heartbreaking. Through individualized and family therapy, unconditional care and a dedicated team of professionals children can and do begin to heal. We will never turn a child away because his needs are too great. No child deserves to live a life filled with pain and suffering.
Cleveland Christian Home also offers Community-Based Services to children and families to help them stay together in times of crisis. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of children suffering from abuse, neglect, mental illness and severe emotional and behavioral concerns.
