Day 64 Good Everyday Nevada

Today, the tour stopped in Nevada. C.A.R.E. is sharing the spotlight today.

What is C.A.R.E.? What do they do?

Glad you asked.

C.A.R.E. according to their site:

was established in 1994 as a California 501(c)(3) corporation operating group homes in Ventura County, California. Each C.A.R.E. facility is 6 beds at an RCL of 10. (They have a Nevada Headquarters too.)

C.A.R.E. specializes in dual diagnosis treatment and rehabilitation for drug and alcohol abusing/dependent foster children.

The population C.A.R.E. serves includes 13-17 year old Wards and Dependents of the court, Mental Health referrals, and other appropriate referrals.

What does C.A.R.E. do?

At each C.A.R.E. facility we provide a comfortable, safe, “home-like” environment that is supervised by trained professionals 24 hour per day.

Our treatment program for all our foster children includes:

Ø     structured behavioral programs utilizing a point and level system
