Promesa Behavioral Health is focused on healing families in crisis. We place emphasis on successful reunification between children and their birth families, relative placements and promoting and providing permanent homes for children. Permanency is always the underlying foundation at Promesa in our day to day approach and outlook on how we serve the children entrusted to our care.
Promesa holds itself highly accountable for all homes we certify.
With ongoing support from the staff, Promesa families will demonstrate an emphasis on providing a welcoming environment for children, embrace, appreciate and accept the individuality of the child/children in their care, demonstrate a true devotion to these children while always reevaluating what the child’s best interest may be and how they may better meet these interests.
