Each graduate is offered the opportunity to continue residing at Blue Monarch for up to an additional year. The transitional program allows the graduate to have continued support for her sobriety with random drug, alcohol, and nicotine screens, as well as participating in Celebrate Recovery, and counseling if needed. The graduate is allowed to remain within the Blue Monarch community as she seeks or transitions into suitable housing, continued education, or employment. This gradual process provides a supportive environment as she adjusts to life outside the Blue Monarch program.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
The children of Blue Monarch have often experienced a wide range of emotional traumas or painful experiences. Each age appropriate child is given the opportunity to receive counseling through outside professionals while living at Blue Monarch.
Each mother at Blue Monarch is given hands-on coaching to address her specific parenting needs and each child’s behavioral challenges. Children receive consistent, non-violent parenting with positive reinforcement to teach them appropriate boundaries and life-skills. Many of the mothers at Blue Monarch are struggling to parent their children sober – possibly for the first time. So it is critical that they feel prepared to parent their children when they leave. If not, the stress of feeling overwhelmed as a single parent may become a trigger to return to drugs as a coping mechanism.
Each child is assessed and receives testing for any developmental delays or learning disabilities. Each child’s schoolwork is carefully monitored and tutoring is provided if needed. Moms are required to schedule parent/teacher conferences to become active in her children’s progress at school.
All kids love having someone “cool” to hang out with so we have a dynamic group of college kids who spend time with our children each week.
Many of the children who come to Blue Monarch have lived in environments where day to day survival took priority over just being a kid. We have goats and chickens, a pond, a pool, a playground, a bunch of cats, a vegetable garden, and 50 acres of beautiful farm land to romp and play.
We believe children are the key to breaking the cycle of abuse, addiction, poverty, and lack of education among the families we serve. As part of our Children’s Program, each child has the opportunity to receive counseling, be tested for developmental delays or learning disabilities, have individual tutors and a piano instructor, and play in a safe and healing environment complete with a playground, pool, pond, vegetable garden, cats, chickens, goats, and a dog all on 50 acres of beautiful farm land.
The children of Blue Monarch learn what it means to grow up in a loving, Christian home. They attend church twice a week, say the blessing before every meal and say prayers with their mothers. We feel very strongly that the longer a child stays at Blue Monarch, the stronger foundation he or she has to establish his or her own Christian home one day.
Blue Monarch allows children age 12 years and under to live at Blue Monarch with their mother to recover together as a family. We also accept women who are currently expecting.
