Programs: The purpose of Hoffman Homes for Youth (HHY) is to provide comprehensive psychiatric care, treatment, and education to emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families. Hoffman is committed to providing services that are cost effective and responsive to the unique needs of each child, always in close cooperation with the parents/guardians, referring agencies, case management organizations, school systems, and funding sources. We are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

HHY treats the needs of boys and girls ages 6 to 18 without regard to race, creed, or national origin, who have a major mental health diagnosis. The residential treatment program is licensed to provide behavioral and cognitive therapy, physical health care services, and a safe and comfortable home for up to 141 children on our campus.

Children admitted to HHY have significant trauma experiences that include neglect, physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Children are referred to HHY by psychiatric hospitals, public agencies, case management organizations, local educational agencies, and private practitioners. Our comprehensive clinical treatment program often serves the transitional needs of children between hospital and community based treatment. The primary expectation of all children admitted is that they are committed to gaining the abilities and skills necessary for a successful return to community-based living environments.

Children admitted to HHY must be able to benefit from the wide range of therapeutic activities provided, such as talk therapy, recreation therapy, art therapy, horticulture therapy, pet therapy, and therapeutic horsemanship. During a child’s placement at Hoffman Homes for Youth, they are provided with educational services. Since the early 1970’s, HHY has partnered with the Gettysburg Area School District (GASD) and the Lincoln Intermediate Unit (LIU) to provide special education services on our campus to the children in care.

HHY is licensed by the Office of Children, Youth, and Families (OCYF) and approved by the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMSAS) of the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW) and by the Department of Health.

We are very proud of our success rate! In 2011, 83% of the children discharged met their treatment goals while at Hoffman Homes for Youth and successfully returned to the community.

I was a resident at Hoffman Homes a very long time ago. I was a child who had been in many residential treatment facilities growing up, much like a lot of other kids who "grow up in the system." Hoffman Homes was the very best! The staff who worked with me on a daily basis were so kind and caring. ... more »
