At Hillsides, we serve many needs. We provide adoption services and homes for children in foster care, a therapeutic non-public school offering individualized education, housing and employment for youth formerly in foster care, and counseling centers where youth and families can receive crucial mental health services.

While each program stands alone, they also complement each other. Clients are able to take advantage of many of our services as they heal, grow, and thrive. 

For example, a child in foster care might live in our residential treatment program and also attend our school. Once the child graduates, they can access our Youth Moving On program for youth transitioning from foster care to adulthood and also take advantage of our counseling services.

James, a youth formerly in foster care who at 21, found himself homeless and unemployed. We were able to surround him with services, reaching across our programs, to get him the help he needed. Today he is living in an apartment, working a job, and planning to apply to college.

At Hillsides, we are committed to using all of our many resources to support the more than 17,000 children, youth, and families we serve.

Please join us in helping youth like James. We can’t do it alone. To truly make a big impact, we need you. Please consider making a gift of $50, $100, $250 or $500 today.
