Bell House Residential Care

The Trent Hill Center for Children and Families’ (Trent Hill Center) Bell House is a group home for youth who have been removed from their homes due to abuse,neglect, or abandonment. Trent Hill Center gives housing priority to local youth, in an effort to keep them close to their homes, families, schools, churches, and communities.

The Trent Hill Center primarily houses teenagers in our residential care program. We provide a safe and loving home where youth’s developmental, physical, social, emotional, educational, intellectual, and spiritual needs can be met for as long as they need to remain in residential care, up to age 21.

Trent Hill Center Bell House provides the following services to our resident youth:

  • Meeting each youth’s basic needs for shelter, food, utilities, clothing and medical care;
  • Coordinating and overseeing educational services that meet the academic needs of each individual youth;
  • Teaching and reinforcing independent living skills, including job readiness;
  • Ensuring that each youth has the opportunity to participate in preferred faith-based organizations and programming;
  • Providing opportunities for youth to participate in community and extracurricular activities;
  • Counseling, case management, and advocacy.

Family Services

Unless family visitation is specifically prohibited by a court order or other legal document, THC makes every effort to engage family members in care planning and decision-making, visitation and communication, and program activities. THC has an open-door policy for family visitation, permitting family members to spend as much time with children/youth as possible (up until 7p each day).

THC also provides services to family members by asking family members directly about their own needs, their ideas and resources for family reunification, helping with concrete services, such as transportation, when feasible, and helping them better understand and rectify problems that led to separation of the child/youth from the home.
