Company Overview

Providing individuals and families with hope and support through life’s challenges.
We pride ourselves on partnering with families and meeting them where they are, when they need it the most.

A legacy of successful outcomes has allowed Pressley Ridge to expand services to communities in Central Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. Each year 9,000 children and families are strengthened primarily through services provided in their homes and community and, if needed, in an out-of-home setting. We offer more than 70 innovative programs – all of which share a common goal of establishing stable, healthy families and life-long connections that result in a successful, happy life.

Our Vision

“All Kids Thrive.”
At Pressley Ridge, we share a dream that one day all kids may thrive. All of our efforts every day are directed at creating a world in which our vision can become a reality.

Our Mission

“To do whatever it takes to create success for children and families.”
Our mission statement speaks to our complete and unequivocal commitment to do everything in our power to improve the lives of children and families everywhere—especially those whose lives we touch. There is no challenge too big or barrier too strong to keep us from doing our utmost on their behalf. We succeed when they succeed.


Empowering families, youth and individuals with hope, healing and happiness.
Everyone faces challenges in life. Given the right tools, skills and support, everyone has an opportunity to thrive. Through our trauma-sensitive approach and family engagement model, Pressley Ridge’s goal is to create lifelong connections that result in a successful, happy life.

Pressley Ridge integrates a trauma-informed perspective into all of our services, providing the foundation for a basic understanding of the psychological, neurological, biological, and social impact that trauma has on individuals. We believe that treatment should be a family endeavor, that every family member plays an important role in helping to mend. Therefore, each of our programs treat youth by involving families in their care, no matter the volume or complexity of family issues or the severity of the child’s needs.

  • In focusing on individual strengths.
  • Exceptional staff is the cornerstone of our success.
  • Collaboration increases impact.
  • In improving the lives of our youth, families and staff through a culture of equity, inclusion and non-judgment.
