  • This accreditation also requires our HillsidesCares team must continuously strive for improvement and ensure high-quality services for clients.
  • Our COA accreditation reflects our dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and client care.

Educational Services at HillsidesCares

At HillsidesCares, our educational services are the foundation of our youth education program. Our multidisciplinary team takes an “if and when” approach to education for our clients and families. We want to help our clients succeed in school. However, the mental and behavioral health recovery of our clients is the number one priority at HillsidesCares. We want to help our clients reach their educational goals if and when they are ready to bring attention back to their education, and they feel their mental health is at a point in which school activities can resume. Our educational instructors, a classroom space, and case managers are resources used to assist our clients in making the transition back to schoolwork when they are ready.

Additional Education Resources

Some of the reasons that our youth education program is so effective are the additional resources we provide. We truly strive to provide a wide range of educational services for all of our clients.

A few of the additional resources that are part of our educational services include:

  • A full library
  • Computer lab
  • One-on-one tutoring
  • Virtual classes
