Youth Residential Programs
The Residential Care program at Silky Oaks offers out-of-home care residential and support services to young people who are in the care of the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.
Our residential programs are located in the Wynnum/Manly, Redlands and Logan areas.
The aim of the program is to provide care for children who live apart from their families and to focus on maintaining family relationships. The program focuses on developing independent living skills to enable young people to live a full and meaningful life in the community.
Our focus is to create a warm, caring and therapeutic environment that supports young people’s development. This includes personal growth, social skills, life skills, educational needs, training and employment opportunities, identity, behaviour management, community involvement, and family relationships.
