The mission of Concept 7 is to ease the suffering of abused and neglected children by providing a continuum of family-centered treatment and support-related programs.
Through nearly 40 years of exceptional services shaped in response to the needs of its youth and to the best practices of care, Concept 7 has established itself as a leading provider for abused and neglected youth. Founded on the idea that effective programs to heal abuse must include the seven concepts of Rescue, Recognition, Relationship, Responsibility, Respect, Resolution, and Renewal, Concept 7 now provides an ever-strengthening continuum of services to over 1,500 youth and families annually.
Over the next 14 years the agency expanded to include six group homes and two ranches. In 1986, recognizing that youth who finished the group home programs would benefit from a greater continuity of care, Concept 7™ added a licensed foster family agency to its service continuum and began its foster family program, which tripled in capacity in its first year.
