Chaddock is on the cutting edge of treatment for children who have experienced severe abuse, neglect, or other trauma in their early years of development, and is nationally-respected for the excellent results demonstrated in our Developmental Trauma and Attachment Program (DTAP).
Many of the children in this program were adopted by loving families, but the unresolved issues from their early childhood prevent them from forming loving, nurturing relationships. Chaddock works with the whole family to rebuild relationships and bring about healing for the profound pain and unresolved trauma experienced by these children.
Chaddock’s on-campus accredited school provides specialized education for residential students and also for many other students from the Quincy area. Chaddock School incorporates trauma-informed interventions and challenges the students to stretch academically. Field trips, school dances, choir performances, end of semester celebrations, and poetry slams enhance the learning environment and showcase the talent of our students.
Our foster care program is consistently rated as one of the top programs in the state of Illinois. The ultimate goal of our program is to provide a safe and loving home for children in need. Every effort is made to repair broken family units and return children to a secure and caring home with their birth parents. When this is not possible, we work to transition the children into permanent adoptive homes.
