Heather Lewis, LPC


Community Services Coordinator

 250,000 youth struggle with mental and behavioral health issues every year.  

We work with families, youth and the community to ensure solutions designed that meet their unique needs. We have a broad continuum of care: Residential Homes, Private School, Community Based Services. Allowing us the flexibility to meet the child’s need every step of the way. 


Elk Hill schools look a lot like schools anywhere. It's what goes on inside that makes them special.

Community Services

Our community-based services take Elk Hill on the road. We partner with local schools and families to reach children early and create a lasting support network.

Residential Services 

Elk Hill's roots are in residential services. We've been providing teens with safe, supportive spaces to live, heal, and grow for over four decades.

In a Time of Crisis, He Showed Inner Strength

JT, a junior at Elk Hill Staunton
School, just wanted to be done with
school. In the classroom, he was
known for doing the bare minimum
to get by. If a class didn’t have an
SOL (Standards of Learning) test at
the end of the semester, he didn’t
see the point of taking it.
