Three Unique Campuses
Our main campus is set on 14 open acres of property with picturesque views of the magnificent Hudson River. Located in the heart of Westchester County, the campus is just 20 miles north of New York City and is easily accessible by public transportation. There are approximately 74 male and female residents with behavioral and emotional challenges.
Home to our Animal Assisted Therapy Program, our Jennie Clarkson campus is nestled on 35-acres of secluded, wooded property at Route 22 and Old Orchard Street. The tranquil campus serves as home to approximately 54 youngsters with cognitive and developmental challenges such as: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Bipolar and Depressive Disorders, and an IQ Range of 60-120
The New Windsor campus is located on 22-acres in Orange County, about one hour’s drive from the Agency’s main office. In the summer of 2016, the program objectives were refocused and the campus became a single gender program serving up to 36 girls. This program is designed to help young women ages 12-21 develop the strengths and coping skills they need to reduce the trauma they have experienced and pursue interests with less gender stereotyping.
