We stand for integrated, comprehensive behavioral healthcare in safe, supportive residential settings.

Everstand’s residential programs equip youth and their families with vital tools that build resiliency for life's greatest challenges.

Our wide range of safe, supportive living environments are designed to meet the diverse backgrounds and needs of youth in our care. A multi-disciplinary team works to create a custom, comprehensive treatment plan tailored to the individual needs of each child, including medical, behavioral health, education, and life skills development.

Movement within the continuum of residential programs is fluid; successful treatment interventions remain consistently applied as youth celebrate successful progress forward.


Our Residential Continuum

Our partnerships with state and local entities, community connections, and our unique Mid-Atlantic residential program footprint, mean that Everstand can often keep a child more local to their family and other support systems.  No matter the distance, Everstand’s residential programs have transportation services incorporated to ensure links to home and their communities, as well as the family’s ability to visit with that young person on site, do not get interrupted.

Treatment Foster Care Homes

Nurturing foster homes provide safety and stability as youth await family reunification or permanent placement.

Semi- and Fully Independent Living Programs

We believe there is a strong sense of confidence that comes with preparing for independent living, and we know it takes a village to get there. Our community-based group home options extend across Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Our Treatment Methodology

Youth in our program are doing the incredibly hard work of mastering new approaches to self-regulate, finding their voice to advocate for what they need in the moment, and learning what they need to be successful in the long term.  

Our treatment model connects all residential service lines at Everstand. While each child’s needs are unique, what they frequently also share is a history of complex trauma. That is where the evidence-based practices used at Everstand shine.
