Day and Residential Services for Youth
Every person deserves kindness and support. That’s why we’ve been serving children and families for 50 years now. We have made a positive difference in the lives of over 304,000 children and families. KVC provides expert and compassionate care to youth ages 6 to 18 who are experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, impacts of trauma, and other behavioral and mental health needs.
KVC Niles provides day treatment services for youth with therapeutic and educational opportunities throughout the day while they attend Niles Prep, our accredited alternative school for grades K-12.
KVC Niles’ day treatment services are provided to students of Niles Prep School, a K-12 private school approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education. This trauma-informed school provides education and therapy to youth through personalized treatment goals; individual, group and family therapy; and small classroom sizes. Niles Prep School offers youth with a place to heal, change, and grow, and a place where learning is fun. Learn more.
At KVC Niles, youth receive intensive clinical services in a home-like environment with 24-hour supervision and support from our trained clinicians and staff. Youth learn emotion regulation and coping skills and practice the skills they are learning while enjoying fun and educational community outings. Our primary goal is to help each child safely transition back to their community with improved emotion regulation and cognitive processing skills. Learn more.
At KVC Niles, our treatment teams work with each child’s parents/guardians to create an aftercare plan and coordinate follow-up care in their home community to help ensure continued success. We believe that follow up services are essential to a child’s sustained progress, and when possible, we will help schedule these appointments.
Aftercare services might include individual therapy, family therapy/education, specialized educational services, medication management, psychosocial/supportive groups, substance use treatment, attendant care and/or case management services.
