Wake Up

In the morning our students do a number of things to get prepared for their day. This can include self-care, personal hygiene and stewardships like laundry and/or cleaning their personal space.

Heart Training & Morning Mindfulness

We looked at 15 different programs before deciding to apply for Calo

Each program listed a dozen or more things that they do, services they provide, and somewhere in that list was “early childhood trauma with attachment disorder.” That wasn’t good enough for us. We didn’t want our son in a program where his particular need was only one aspect of their program. It’s impossible to do that many things, and do them all well. Calo does one thing, and does it with commitment and excellence.

Calo offers an exceptional model for kids with early childhood trauma and attachment disorders

Supported by insightful, competent, and caring therapists, psychiatrist, and staff. By the time someone is considering residential treatment, the journey to that point has likely already been long, hard, and lonely-for parents and kids alike! We have found Calo to be an exceptional partner on this challenging journey and we are thankful to have found the program. Our son’s progress is slow and we know it will take time, but we also know we are in good hands and are giving ourselves and our son the opportunity for growth and healing—and ultimately joy!

This place has completely changed my life

I was a past student at Calo and this place truly created a path of opportunity where I can learn to trust again and have healthy relationships. The canine program here is truly outstanding. Transferable attachments can be healing, first comes the human to dog trust then comes the human to human relationship. Kids with developmental trauma have to start somewhere.
