BOARD OF CHILD CARE, INC.

The Board of Child Care is a nonprofit multi-service organization serving children and their families for more than 130 years throughout Maryland, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.  The agency's purpose is to enrich communities, one family at a time. Our residential programs provide a safe environment for children to heal and we provide a community of hope for youth and their families.


Level III Program at Falling Waters

The program provides intensive residential treatment services and academic and therapeutic support to both males and females ages 12 to 21. Services are trauma-informed, youth guided, family focused and culturally competent and designed to help youth overcome emotional, psychological, educational, substance use and behavioral issues to help them heal from trauma and gain the skills, self-esteem and motivation to move towards social and academic success and function as responsible community members. Youth present a range of emotional issues and challenging behaviors that prevent them from living within their home environment. Many have been traumatized by physical and sexual abuse, neglect, multiple living situations and family addiction issues while others have experienced truancy, family problems, substance abuse and juvenile justice issues.  The state-of-the-art, 50-bed residential facility is situated on 40 acres in Berkeley County, WV. It is enriched with an on-grounds educational center; indoor and outdoor recreational facilities that include a gymnasium, fitness room, recreation room, outdoor swimming pool, ropes course, skate park, basketball and tennis courts, baseball field; a multipurpose dining facility; chapel; administration building; and clinic building where the healthcare suite and physician’s office are located.  Youth in the program reside in five cottages, each containing 10 individual bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, laundry room, game room and two baths.  Each cottage has a supervisor, master’s level, licensed therapist and bachelor level direct care staff who provide multiple and intensive treatment services on a daily basis. The minimum staff to resident ratio is 1 staff for 3 residents.  Services on campus also include recreation therapy, nursing services, psychiatric services and optional spiritual life activities.  Services are provided by a multidisciplinary treatment team under the direction of the agency’s Psychiatrist and all of BCC’s therapists and addictions counselors are highly trained in evidenced based treatment models and in family therapy so they are able to work closely with families whenever appropriate.  Education is provided by the WV Department of Education, Office of Diversion and Transition Programs through an on-grounds school utilizing an extended, 240 day school year. Smaller class sizes and the availability of traditional, non-traditional and alternative pathways options provides a flexible route to a high school diploma or equivalent for each student.
 

Level II Program at Campolina Way

The program provides residential treatment services and academic and therapeutic support to male and female youth, ages 12 to 21, who have co-existing mental/behavioral health and intellectual or developmental disability diagnoses. The program is designed to provide care, supervision, support, treatment and skills training, to youth with multiple disabilities in a community-based setting.  In addition to intellectual and/or developmental issues, youth also present a range of emotional issues and challenging behaviors that prevent them from living within their home environment. Many have been traumatized by physical and sexual abuse, neglect, multiple living situations and family addiction issues while others have experienced truancy, family problems, substance abuse and juvenile justice issues.  The ultimate goal of the program is to help achieve permanency through family reunification, adoption, or independence/transition to adulthood.  The program is based on a trauma informed, positive behavior support treatment model with a strong emphasis on youth involvement with community-based resources and activities including enrollment in local community schools.  Youth are involved in family-style activities like preparing meals, doing chores and going on outings as well as attending public school in a community setting.  The program is situated on 10 acres in a newly developed residential community in Berkeley County, WV and currently serves a total of 15 youth. Youth live in 3 gender-specific residential houses that each contain five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an open concept kitchen/dining/living area, a laundry room, and recreation and game rooms. The staffing ratio is a minimum of two staff per five residents.  Treatment services occur on a daily basis and are provided by a multidisciplinary treatment team under the direction of the agency’s Psychiatrist.  All direct care staff have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and all of BCC’s therapists and addictions counselors are licensed professionals at the master’s degree level and are highly trained in evidenced based treatment models and in family therapy so they are able to work closely with families whenever appropriate. Services are trauma-informed, youth guided, family focused and culturally competent and designed to help youth overcome emotional, psychological, educational, substance use and behavioral issues to help them heal from trauma and gain the skills, self-esteem and motivation to move towards social and academic success and function as responsible community members.
