                            All proceeds will support Bonnie Brae’s new Crisis Stabilization Home in Chester, NJ!

Bonnie Brae’s new Crisis Stabilization Home will provide shelter and short-term services (up to 90 days) to male, female, non-binary or transgender youths, ages 13 to 18, who have experienced complex trauma.  The goal of the program is to deescalate crises, help youth manage behavioral and mental health issues, and establish connections with community resources so that they can return to a stable home situation. This will be the first residential program at Bonnie Brae that provides services for females.
Like our other community homes the Crisis Stabilization Home will have a home-like environment with therapeutic elements to provide a sense of comfort, safety, belonging, stability, and growth.  Our home in Chester, New Jersey, has a large yard, several inside spaces for group meetings and recreation, 5 bedrooms, ample space for individual and family counseling, and a private office for staff.
The home will be staffed 24/7.  Close supervision by highly trained and caring residential staff, will provide targeted clinical/behavioral interventions, intensive family therapy, and community reintegration skills.  An array of other services, including health, education, recreation, vocational skills, and allied therapies (yoga, tai chi) is also included.
Thank you for your support – we are looking forward to opening this program in early summer 2021!
