The Reuter Transitional Cottage is a level 3 cottage designed to care for students in need of this level of care that have been in higher levels of care for extended periods of time. This initially was a 30-45 day program, however that has shifted during the pandemic to be more in line with traditional Level 3 programs, with typical stays averaging around 6 months.
This program partners with area agencies to return the student to the family home with varying levels of support at home and school or step them down to a therapeutic foster care level with additional supports as well. The students should be referred by their Complex Care Manager from VAYA.
