About Graham Windham
In full partnership with families & communities, Graham Windham strives to make a life-altering difference to children, youth and families affected by abuse, neglect and delinquency by providing each child we serve with a strong foundation for life: a safe, loving, permanent family and the opportunity and preparation to thrive in school and in the world. With over 600 full-time employees serving children and families in multiple programs throughout Westchester County, Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Harlem, Graham Windham provides an exciting & enriching work experience.
Graham Windham is one of the first organizations in the New York City to implement Solution – Based Casework. Solution – Based casework helps children and families to be the solution to the seemingly insurmountable problems in their lives, from generational cycles of poverty, abuse, and neglect to unemployment, domestic violence, and severe health problems. By recognizing and reinforcing their innate strengths and ability to cope, we at Graham Windham empower them to take the lead in making change in their lives.
About the Program - Residential Education & Treatment Center (RETC)
Situated on a bluff overlooking the scenic Hudson River in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, the Graham School serves over 300 at-risk day and residential students from the New York City metropolitan area. The first of its unique areas of emphasis is on the development of a therapeutic pro-social/pro-self-milieu. A sustained and concentrated focus on permanency planning (permanent homes for all our students) is our second distinguishing feature. Our family-driven service model recognizes the central role that families play in the lives of children and honors the very special bond that exists between children and their families. Our third distinguishing feature is our educational program. The Greenburg-Graham Union Free School District, located on campus, provides a year-round K-12 educational program for every Graham School student.
