Palm Beach County Youth Services Highridge Family Center is currently accepting youth residents during the summer starting on June 13 and into the following school year. Highridge is a free, three to four-month residential treatment program for Palm Beach County Youth aged 11-16 who are experiencing difficulties within their home, school, or community.
During the summer, Highridge runs Monday-Thursday, with residents returning home on Thursday afternoon. Summer school is offered on-site in partnership with the Palm Beach County School District. A Licensed Psychologist supervises the Highridge Family Center with professional staff consisting of licensed clinical social workers, clinicians, family counselors, residential counselors, and nurses. In addition to mandatory group, family, and individual therapy, residents are offered a wide array of recreational activities. Highridge residents will participate in art and outdoor activities through our collaborations with the Norton Art Museum and Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department.
Services are free for Palm Beach County families except for a seventy-five dollar activity fee. Please call 561-625-2540 for more information.
