Hermitage House Youth Services
Providing quality care TODAY for responsible adults TOMORROW
Programs and Services
Hermitage House opened in 1974 to provide quality care through residential rehabilitative services. Our philosophy of treatment is that a balance between caring support and consistent discipline with appropriate counseling and therapeutic intervention can make the difference in the life of a troubled youth. We now have two boys’ units, a girls’ unit, and transitional living apartments. HHYS also has an Emergency Shelter and a High Impact Program which provides a safe and therapeutic environment for youth who are in need of intensive intervention. Our programs include: specialized counseling, L.E.A.P. job skills training, NYPUM minibike program, Chaplain Program, therapeutic Art Program, Key Club, and an independent living program.
