The Yonkers campus at Andrus combines our award-winning Orchard School, offering K-9 special education to over 150 children, with our Residential Treatment Program serving over 80 children. Clinical services are woven into all of our work to ensure that children and families will build brighter futures. Our Sanctuary Model(SM) of trauma-informed care addresses stress and adversity, and emphasizes caring and hope. Our historic 110-acre campus is a beautiful and safe environment where children can learn to understand their experiences of loss and stress, manage their emotions and develop new coping strategies for success.
I just wanted to say Thank You! My daughter has been at Andrus for over 1 year now. I am so proud of her and what she has accomplished in the past year. I owe it all to the wonderful staff.
Her transformation began at Andrus, where love, patience, encouragement, and the right interventions at the right time literally saved her life and mine.
It really does take a village to raise a child and together, we are all making it happen. Thank you so much for all that you do.
Before I came to Andrus, I was always mad and scared and frustrated. My staff has helped me work through so many really tough situations and I’ll always be grateful to them for that. In a way, I feel like Andrus saved my life.
Thank you and everyone at Andrus for everything you do for my son, I appreciate your infinite patience with him.
I appreciate my staff because they really listen to what I want and need.
If I could, I would testify in front of the State Assembly: “If Andrus can handle my son…they can handle ANYBODY!”
As a single mom, I was worried for how we would readjust when my son graduated from Andrus and moved home. I was amazed at how the staff continued to support us and check in on him after graduation, I know they genuinely care about his success and we are both so grateful for that.
My daughter is understanding and succeeding far beyond what she was able to in her previous schools. It’s amazing to see how much more she enjoys school now!
Andrus gave my son the chance to realize his potential, to realize that he is intelligent and that he can succeed. I have never seen him more confident.
