Bill’s Place

Bill’s Place

Youth Villages’ Bill’s Place is an expansive and state-of-the-art facility designed to address specifically a gap in services for youth with a greater need of integrated care and the growing community need for intensive treatment options to serve the most at-risk and vulnerable youth.

Opened in January 2020, Bill’s Place serves both boys and girls from ages 10-17, some who may have a greater need of integrated care and complicating or co-occurring medical and mental health conditions.

  • Comprehensive child and family evaluation
  • Group, individual and family therapy
  • Master-level counselors
  • Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy

  • Physical and occupational therapy rooms

A Focus on Education

While they don’t leave the facility, our youth do experience the routine and discipline of going to school. This ensures they stay on track, earn a degree or can return to a traditional school after leaving.

  • Special, individualized curricula
  • Traditional classrooms
  • Accredited to offer diplomas
  • Modern computer lab
  • Individual focus on returning to grade-level skill

Therapeutic Recreation

Certified recreational therapists regularly engage the youth in therapeutic activities in order to teach teamwork, encourage sportsmanship, strengthen trust, improve communication and allow children to expend “stored-up” energy.

Activities include:

  • Art center
  • Library
  • Computer lab
  • Exercise room
  • Swimming pool
  • Gymnasium
  • Outside playground
  • Theater and musical performance room
  • West African-style therapeutic drumming
  • Neurofeedback therapy program

Safe and Secure

While Bill’s Place is a fully monitored, hardware-secured residential environment where safety is a top priority, large and open spaces filled with natural light help alleviate the institutional quality often associated with programs featuring this level of intensity and security.

Our facility includes:

  • Close supervision by a child-and-adolescent psychiatrist
  • 24-hour nursing care
  • An enhanced health clinic with nursing and psychiatric staff, pediatricians, dentists and optometrists
