Inspiration Hill Residential Care

The Inspiration Hill Residential Care Program provides a safe, stable environment where at-risk young men live, learn and grow to become productive, independent adults. The program serves high school age boys who live on our main campus and attend the Omaha Home for Boys High School while also having access to therapy, employment opportunities, recreation and other support services.

The Residential Care Program utilizes a family environment and behaviorally-based curriculum to equip youth with positive skills and the ability to make sound decisions when confronted with difficult choices. The program is designed to help teens learn life skills, develop positive behaviors and advance academically.

Campus Living

Creating a safe, secure, healthy family environment is at the heart of the Inspiration Hill Residential Care Program. The young men live with their peers and Life Skills Teachers in homes on our main campus. Life Skills Teachers create a loving home environment while acting as positive role models and mentors for the youth in their care in a supportive, structured home.

Also on our main campus is the Omaha Home for Boys High School, our feature-rich Eugene C. Eppley Recreation Center and a dining hall.

Educational Opportunities

All of the Home’s residential care youth attend the Omaha Home for Boys School on our main campus. Students focus on credit recovery and accrual while working toward the goal of meeting grade level expectations at the completion of the program. The school also assists with college planning and financial aid and offers scholarships to eligible students.

Therapy

The Residential Care Program uses the BELIEF therapy program to combat the prevalent and pervasive impact of trauma on the lives of our youth. BELIEF is a 12-week program that provides both individual and group therapy as well as staff education and consultation.

Support Services

The Residential Care Program takes a comprehensive approach to help youth thrive by offering a number of support services. Our Youth Employment Program teaches workforce readiness skills; the Wellness Program focuses on nutrition, healthy lifestyle choices and physical activity; and participation in 4-H allows youth to practice responsibility, develop a strong work ethic and gain self-confidence.

Admissions

Youth in our Residential Care Program must be court-ordered for admissions. The Residential Care Team will schedule an interview and campus tour with the legal guardian or placing agency. Prior to admission, a reunification plan for the youth and legal guardians will be established.

The Home partners with a wide network of services and organizations to help match youth to the treatment that will be most beneficial for them.
