Transitional Residences for At-Risk Children

What is It?

    T.R.A.C. is Maine's newest transitional (or "Bridge") home for children who are between foster placements, recently out of hospital, or recently removed from homes of origin.

Where is it?

    T.R.A.C. is a beautiful two story colonial home that sits on a tree lined knoll in the center of Lisbon Falls. The official address is 672 Lisbon Road, Lisbon, Maine 04250

Who can use this facility?

    Children between the ages of nine and fourteen who have behavioral difficulties, attachment problems, and emotional disturbances. More profoundly troubled children, (i.e., psychotic, extremely suicidal) would be referred to more appropriate treatment facilities.

When will T.R.A.C. be accepting referrals?

    Hopefully by the first of January, 2000.  Keep visiting this website to find out our exact opening date. We will only have six beds, but children can stay from 60-90 days, so there will be steady turnover.

What kind of services will T.R.A.C. provide?

   Case management
   Weekly monitoring by Licensed social worker/case manager
   Comprehensive team for each child that meets monthly
   Inventive, regular recreation, including arts and crafts in our special creativity room
   Ongoing interaction with family members when appropriate
   Aftercare planning
   Medical/therapy appointments kept with original physicians or with facility-secured physicians
