Our Mission

“Connecting Youth and Families to Their Futures”

Excelsior is a specialty clinic with integrated behavioral health providers, educators, care coordinators, peer support specialists, family response specialists, and a variety of direct support specialists. We offer a host of hospital diversion programs, co-occurring enhanced outpatient and residential services, an on-site fully accredited middle and high school, nutrition services, therapeutic recreation, and in the certification process for our 30-acre arboretum with intentional recreation, meditation, and socialization spaces.

We serve a diverse group of individual with a range of presenting difficulties that may compromise their abilities to live happy, healthy lives. At the center of this disruption is one unifying factor: trauma during critical developmental periods. This experience of being injured may include physical and sexual abuse, prenatal exposure to harmful toxins, substance use, witnessing domestic or gang-related violence, loss of a loved one, and generational poverty, among others. Needless to say, the impact of such trauma is profound and inextricably linked to current emotional and behavior difficulties. Despite these challenges, we have witnessed a distinct capacity for healing, resilience, and growth, which is attested to in our vision statement and confirmed in our experiences. We believe that everyone has the potential to be safer, stronger, and more satisfied in the lives they lead. To that end, we provide care, respect, and hope as they seek to connect to their futures.

Our Vision

Our vision is to serve a broad base of youth and families with the primary aim of identifying goals and making positive steps towards accomplishing them. In our community, we are advocates for youth and hold fast to the belief that children and families have the potential to be safer, stronger, and more satisfied in the lives they lead.

Our Values

“Unity – Communication – Professionalism”

Our Promise

“Care – Respect – Hope”
