It Starts With A Home
Oaks Integrated Care provides caring, residential services in a safe, loving environment for children, teens and families.
Our goal is to help children and teens ages 5-21 living with emotional/behavioral challenges and/or a developmental disability overcome challenges and thrive in a 24/7 supervised community setting. Trauma informed services include individual therapy, group therapy, psychiatric care and medical care, all coordinated in a community home. We take great pride in our welcoming, well-maintained homes located in safe residential areas throughout southern and central New Jersey. The comfortable space allows children to learn, grow and reach their full potential.
We value family and community connections and commit to providing best practice clinical intervention in the least restrictive environment possible. Clinical services are supported with social opportunities, recreation, educational support, art and music.
Group Homes Include:
- Psychiatric Community Homes
- Detention Alternative Homes
- Residential Treatment Homes
- Group homes for children with developmental disabilities
- Respite home for children with developmental disabilities
Supportive Housing for Families
Poverty, chronic homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse, domestic violence- all can bring a family to the brink of crisis. Often these factors put children at risk of abuse and neglect which can result in child welfare involvement and ultimately removal from the family home. Our programs for families pair supportive housing with support services such as case management and family preservation services to help vulnerable families with highly complex challenges stay together:
Keeping Families Together (KFT), a statewide initiative through the Department of Children and Families, provides affordable supportive housing and support services for families in Burlington County involved with the child welfare system. KFT addresses each aspect of the family’s life to ensure housing is maintained such as linkage to primary and behavioral health care, substance abuse treatment, therapy, education, education/vocational services, financial literacy and life skills training.
Cooperative Agreement to Benefit Homeless Individuals (CABHI), our first ever SAMHSA award, is a 3-year project to increase access to housing for families in Mercer County with at least one member living with a Substance Use Disorder, Serious Mental Illness or Co-Occurring Disorder. Services designed to increase family functioning and maintain long-term stable housing include outreach, housing search, family-focused supportive services, benefit access and peer support.
