What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The overarching goal at Hoffman Homes for Youth is for every child placed at Hoffman Homes to achieve their individualized treatment goals and be discharged successfully from Hoffman Homes' program.

Therapists, clinicians, and staff understand the impact of children's trauma experiences, and create individualized therapeutic treatment plans that build trust, promote self-awareness, and lifelong recovery. Hoffman Homes for Youth is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

Daily operations at Hoffman Homes include the following strategies:
Hoffman Homes conducts family therapy sessions monthly
Hoffman Homes conducts individual therapy sessions weekly
Hoffman Homes conducts daily group therapy sessions with focused topics
Hoffman Homes conducts creative therapy sessions every quarter - 10 week sessions
Hoffman Homes records all psychiatric and physical health visits
Each student progresses to the next grade level at the end of the school year

Additionally, Hoffman Homes uses the evidence supported Sanctuary Model for trauma-informed care. The Sanctuary Model is an organizational and treatment intervention based on the tenets of trauma theory and an understanding of systems theory. Sanctuary addresses the ways in which trauma, adversity, and chronic stress influence individual behavior as well as the ways in which entire organizations can be influenced by trauma, adversity, and chronic stress. Sanctuary is based on a set of guiding principles as well as some specific tools that reinforce the philosophy when practiced by the employees and children on a daily basis. A trauma-informed culture has an organizing structure for thinking about how people heal and what they need in order to grow and change. The core values and guiding principles of the Sanctuary Model are honesty and integrity, safety and well-being, dignity and respect, commitment to excellence.

The residential treatment program at Hoffman Homes is licensed to provide behavioral and cognitive therapy, physical health care services, and a safe and comfortable home for children on campus.

Hoffman Homes currently employs over 200 staff, including therapists, mental health workers, medical services professionals, educational staff, management, and administrative positions.

Hoffman Homes hosts continuing education seminars on campus in conjunction with local universities and medical centers. Seminars are currently administered by McDaniel College. Hoffman Homes is a member of PA Council of Children, Youth, and Family Services (PCCYFS-PA), and has been affiliated with United Church of Christ (UCC) since inception.

The Office of Children Youth and Families (OCYF), PA Department of Health, PA Department of Human Services (DHS), Bureau of Program Integrity, Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS), and Managed Care Organizations (MCO's), are state regulatory agencies that survey the physical campus, children's records, and staff records during regular site visits.

The rate of children successfully discharged each year will continue to be over 85%.

Creative Therapy programs provide an addition to traditional talk therapy.
Through Art therapy, Music Therapy, Pet Therapy, and Therapeutic Horsemanship, children learn responsibility, coping and relaxation techniques, group cohesiveness, and impulse control. Creative therapies help to develop confidence, increase self-esteem, and enhance communication skills, along with many other important skills. The specialized therapists who teach creative therapies report minimal to no aggressive behaviors during sessions.

Hoffman Academy is a private academic special education school for grades 1-12, with state certified special education teachers and state approved curriculum that allows students to continue their education while at Hoffman Homes for Youth. Hoffman Academy provides small class sizes, social skills education, transition planning, and differentiated instruction. Hoffman Academy offers 1:1 technology in each room, and a Makerspace Room with a 3D printer for creative projects. Staff are trained in safe crisis management.
