Throughout the day of admission, children and their families and agency representatives will meet with staff representing the Admissions Department, Medical Services Department, and Hoffman Academy education staff. A psychiatric and medical assessment will be completed, all required paperwork and documentation will be reviewed and completed, and the child will be oriented to his or her residence. The legal guardian is asked to accompany the child on the day of admission to sign consent forms, information release forms, medical forms, and educational forms. The admission process will take approximately three hours.
Please bring all current medications/prescriptions. Personal hygiene products are provided to the children by Hoffman Homes for Youth. It is recommended that a seven to ten-day supply of season appropriate clothing be packed for the child. Children should not bring personal items of great value with them. Many children choose to bring hand held electronic games, toys, art supplies, books, and music players with headphones. Items with phone, internet, camera, or recording features are not permitted.
