At Passavant Memorial Homes (PMH), our Children’s Programs provide intensive care for youth with intellectual disabilities and/or behavioral health diagnoses and supports children and adolescents whose health is at risk while living within their community.
PMH offers a variety of supports tailored to the specific needs of the child or adolescent, and our Teacher Counselors are highly trained and fully committed to ensuring that each child is given the tools to grow and live successfully within the community.
Children’s Residential Program
PMH’s Children’s Residential Program focuses on providing a holistic array of support for the children and adolescents within our care. Our team is committed to providing an environment with its primary focus on Therapeutic Teaching. We believe that all children and adolescents can continue to grow and develop social, recreational, spiritual, emotional, and educational skillsets where their unique qualities are recognized, embraced, and supported. Our program operates in locations across western Pennsylvania and supports children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities and/or behavioral health diagnoses. PMH’s program spans from ages 2 through adolescence at age 18 and operates both male and female residential homes. Since PMH offers a continuum of services, transitioning to a PMH Adult Residential Home is made easier for adolescents already supported within PMH’s Children’s Residential Program.
Children’s Medical Model
PMH’s Children’s Medical Model Residential Program is an excellent opportunity to provide a much-needed service to children and adolescents with complex medical disorders and behavioral risks. PMH provides a continuum of services specifically tailored to address children and adolescents at risk with dual diagnosis whose complex support needs require a multi-disciplinary team effort. PMH is committed to providing an environment with its primary focus on quality medical care and therapeutic teaching, with the belief that even the most complex individuals can grow in competency. Typically, it is preferred that the location is easily accessible to the nearest hospital; however, the residential home is adapted to provide daily ongoing medical support and individual-specific nursing services to empower the child or adolescent to thrive within their local community.
