Community Based Services
Every child deserves to grow up closely connected to
family, friends, and supportive adults.
Whenever possible, we bring mental and behavioral health services to children
in their own homes and schools rather than bringing children to us.
It’s less disruptive, delivers better outcomes for the child, improves
quality of life for families, enhances learning environments in
public schools, and is more cost-effective for us.

Home Based Services
Our supervised visitation offers a safe and structured environment that supports parents/caregivers in developing their strengths with their children. We offer outdoor play areas with gardens, as well as indoor recreation space, all while providing structured options that help parents facilitate positive interactions with their children. Services may be requested by agencies or private individuals.
Visit coaching provides a more hands-on approach to traditional supervised visitation. A certified Visit Coach providing pre-visit coaching, coaching during the visit, and post-visit de-briefing. This directive approach focuses on caregivers meeting the attachment and developmental needs of the child while building on
the caregivers strengths. Visit coaching emphasizes a non-judgmental approach and visits that more
closely reflect typical life situations.
Parent coaching promotes the development of healthy, effective parenting skills and family management through education, role-modeling, practice, and support. Parent coaches work with parents/caregivers to identify specific goals and how to meet them, including encouraging and reinforcing positive behavior, creating appropriate expectations, consistently implementing consequences, and developing healthy
Summer Camps and Outdoor Programs
Elk Hill's Summer Camps are an opportunity for "kids to be kids" through play and enriching activities. While academic readiness remains a core function of the four-week program, children also experience day-trips, swimming, crafting and mindfulness exercises. Our offerings are designed to engage children so that when the school year begins they are able to seamlessly transition back into the routines that help them continue in their behavioral and academic growth.
