The process consists of four main evaluation steps designed to get to know a young person and his or her primary caregiver(s) as well as possible. This allows us to tailor the process to meet their needs. Additional meetings may be required to further explore challenge areas and to develop a more specific treatment plan.
After all of our steps are complete, we decide whether Mercy Home is the most appropriate level of care for the youth.
If a young person is accepted, we will arrange a move-in date. Occasionally, we don’t have space in certain age groups. In this case, the young person will be assigned to an upcoming opening. We do our best to predict when space will become available.
Sometimes we determine that a young person needs a different type of program. For those who require a different level of care, we can recommend other agencies that can best address their needs.
