The YCS Holley program assists up to 70 boys and girls ages 6 to 12 years old who, because of their own needs or that of their family, cannot live at home and need the services of a residential treatment facility. Children generally spend eighteen months in this long-term program. YCS Holley provides a safe, therapeutic environment where each child's developmental needs are met, opportunities for growth are promoted and plans to transition the child to the least restrictive setting possible are maintained. Residential treatment at YCS Holley is based on intensive therapy. From the day of admission, the center's dedicated staff of therapists, social workers, nurses and other child care professionals begin treating both the child and, wherever possible, the family. Children attend the YCS George Washington School located in Hackensack, NJ. There the children receive a specialized blend of education and therapy.
