Program Overview

Sunnybrook serves transitional-age youth, ages 16- 20. A majority of these residents are in state custody, were previously adopted, or come from disadvantaged backgrounds that easily crossover into federal and state systems. Because the needs of residents vary drastically depending on their background, abilities, and personal goals Sunnybrook uses a two-tier program model.

Program Mission

Receive transitional-age youth, initiate and strengthen their overall personal development while at Sunnybrook, and support them as they create and execute a personal plan toward their next step of independence. 

Program Vision 

To see life-change that breaks generational cycles and has an eternal impact on the lives of Sunnybrook residents.

Tier I

Tier I residents are typically 16–18-year-olds who are in high school or working on a high school equivalency. They live with Houseparents who serve as their primary caregivers at Sunnybrook. Tier I’s focus is on the personal and educational development of residents, and preparing them for successful transition into Tier II. 

Tier II

Tier II residents are typically 18-20 years-old and have completed high school or high school equivalency.  Managing their personal affairs, purchasing a car, and saving money for long-term goals are markers of a Tier II resident’s success as they approach transitioning away from Sunnybrook.

Our Goal: Successful Transitions Away from Sunnybrook

"Ever since I came to Sunnybrook, I feel safe and worthy. I have done things I have never been able to do."
