St. Catherine's Center for Children

(518) 453-6700

St. Catherine’s residential program provides treatment for children, ages five to 13, who have been removed from the custody of their families and require 24-hour supervised treatment and care. Children are accepted into St. Catherine’s residential program based on their need for intensive care in a therapeutic setting. Services include individual, group, and family therapy; psychiatric and psychological evaluation; emergency/crisis stabilization and assessment; and daily recreational activity planning. Permanency planning is a critical element of the program. The permanency plan identifies obstacles and barriers to home placement, and establishes a treatment plan designed to help a child return to his or her home as soon as possible.
