Belloni Shelter Care
The Belloni Shelter Care operates as a community based residential shelter program for boys and girls, ages 10-20, which are dependent under the care of the Oregon Department of Human Services, in the process of court proceedings by the Coos County Juvenile Department, respite care for juvenile clients of Coos Health and Wellness, in transition within the foster care system, or residential treatment services provided by the State of Oregon. Youth referred, typically have a history of family conflict, abuse/neglect, foster care, status offending, substance abuse, poor school performance, defiance to authority. Youth are referred from all parts of the state, with priority given to residents on the Southern Oregon Coast. Much like the residential programs, the program includes individual, family, and group counseling as well as individual and group skills training. Most youth are admitted and can have a stay that ranges from a few days to a few months before returning to home, foster care, or other community living. Our goal is to provide gender-based shelter services in a nurturing and structured environment while developing skills and behaviors that they need to cope with crisis in their lives.
Shelter services provided includes assessment and evaluation, supervised group living, peer support, individual, group, and family counseling, individual and group skills training, on-site school, substance abuse prevention, non-violent crisis intervention, and medication management.
