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 program servers youth ages 11-17. 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.
