The Merv Griffin Village is Childhelp’s Residential Treatment Facility for up to 84 children, both male and female, between the ages of 6 and 14. Within the Merv Griffin Village, children live in cottages based on their age and gender, and all children receive continuous, highly-trained therapeutic treatment and supervision. Individual and group therapy are offered each week with additional therapies available as needed, including art therapy, equine/animal assisted therapy, wilderness therapy, music therapy and family therapy when appropriate. Students will remain in residential care at Childhelp for an average of 6-12 months, although remaining for the duration of one school year is not uncommon. During this time, students will receive all the academic support provided to all students of the Non Public School as well as receiving all of the benefits of the residential program, and regular family visitation is encouraged and facilitated whenever possible. Participants of the residential program are not required to attend the Non Public School and many of our residents are bused to public schools nearby, allowing students to transition back into public school as soon as possible regardless of their residential status. Similarly, students attending the Non Public School are not required to be residents of the Merv Griffin Village, although students who attend for the school day only must live within reasonable driving distance of the school.
