RHD Kids

RHD is a pioneer in creating a diverse array of unique, effective children’s services that have helped thousands of children and their families achieve their behavioral and educational goals. RHD’s Children’s Services continuum is very diverse, with a solid network of resources and the ability to provide different services based on the needs of different populations.

From RHD STARS, a unique therapy program operating in Philadelphia charter schools, to RHD HiFi Wraparound, which was the first of its kind in Philadelphia, to RHD Children’s Outreach Services Program, which provides behavioral health services to adolescents under 21, RHD Children’s Services provide individualized, quality support to children of all ages and abilities in a respectful, caring and empowering way.
