Each Trinity campus offers a full range of services that include evidence-based therapy, in addition to recreational, educational, vocational and independent living skills programs to assist young men in confronting and triumphing over their challenges.
Community-Based Mental Health Services
Trinity provides community-based mental health services to children and adolescents who have transitioned from a foster home or a short-term residential therapeutic program back to their family, a relative or other permanency placement and require after-care services.

Claude H., Residential Treatment
I went from having a 0.9 GPA with nowhere to live and a bad attitude about life, to a 4.0 student graduating from high school, being accepted into a transitional housing program and going to college! The time and energy these people put into my overall emotional health and well-being is overwhelming. I am truly thankful to the team at Trinity for helping me become a better, happier man.
Jerry, Foster Child
Thank you for everything you did in my life. I know we had our ups and downs in our life together. Now and to my future I will be proud to call you my mother. I will love you forever.
Maria F., Resource Parent
Being a foster parent has brought me so much joy and love in my life. At my age, I never thought I would be a foster parent, but I love this little boy that I am about to adopt.
