The Webster House exists to meet a condition that is prevalent in New Hampshire: youth who are unable to live at home for some period of time. The Staff's intent is to address four areas of the youth's life.
Physical: By providing a safe home.
Social: By applying the norms of society.
Personal: Through counseling, activities and a wide range of interpersonal relationships.
Family: By rebuilding the bonds and reuniting the family.
We are committed to a program that offers a structure to youth in order to stabilize their lives, resolve issues and encourage personal growth. We are pragmatic in our approaches. Experience has taught us that love and kindness need to be provided in close-conjunction with clear and realistic expectations.
Our goal is to prepare our residents for adult life, recognizing fully that this is ultimately a partnership between the family, the child and the program.
We provide a home. We provide the opportunities for counseling, education and activities. We provide the atmosphere in which adult-child relationships can be rebuilt and created. Within this structure, the direction, kindness and commitment of caring adults can help improve the lives of the children who reside at the Webster House and their families.
