Mountain Valley Child and Family Services (MVCFS) has helped California children and families through our residential treatment programs for more than 50 years. MVCFS provides individualized treatment services for boys and girls, ages 10-21.
MVCFS is committed to assisting those we serve in creating and maintaining a safe living and learning environment that supports health and ongoing growth. We strive to help children and families reach their goals through a continuum of support, collaboration, and prevention. Our team uses culturally sensitive, strength-based best practices to provide holistic and effective healing opportunities for all we serve. We believe that those we serve are capable of creating desired, permanent, and positive changes in themselves, their families, and their communities.
Youth Residential Treatment Programs for Boys & Girls
Mountain Valley Child and Family Services’ short-term youth residential treatment centers provide an array of comprehensive services for children with emotional, behavioral, and educational challenges that are severe enough to keep them from functioning in their homes, schools, and communities.
Mountain Valley Child and Family Services, based in California, provides child and youth mental health services including stabilization, assessment and treatment for children, adolescents and non-minor dependents (NMDs) up to 21 years of age.
Many students who come to Mountain Valley have struggled with academic performance in traditional school settings. We offer students the opportunity to work toward their full potential through a supportive academic environment that includes positive incentives for good grades, individualized programs and teacher assistance.
We Can Help
Our services are facilitated by experienced professionals who care deeply for the children in their care. Services include therapeutic programs, mental health services, special education, and related programs that ensure permanency and ongoing therapeutic and community support.
Services at MVCFS are based on the collaborative efforts of clients, families, placement agency representatives, and our staff. We include families in all treatment decisions whenever possible and appropriate. We use the least restrictive interventions consistent with maintaining safety and effective treatments.
Our staff is trained to maintain professional boundaries while cultivating healthy, supportive, and appropriate relationships. We strive to deliver quality services in a culturally inclusive and linguistically competent manner.
