Fay A. Rotenberg School (Westborough)
The Fay A. Rotenberg School provides education, therapy and counseling to girls who have suffered from significant traumatic incidents, including sexual and physical abuse, poverty and homelessness, sexual exploitation and/or a family history of violence, child abuse or involvement with the justice system.
The Rotenberg School helps each girl understand, acknowledge and take responsibility for behavior resulting from her traumatic past, and learn the skills she needs to make positive choices when she returns to her community.
Residents attend academic classes on campus, and many earn their GEDs. The Rotenberg staff combines structure and accountability with compassion and respect. Each girl is assigned an advocate, a staff member who serves as her point person during her stay. Advocates work with the girls to develop individualized behavioral plans, track their performance, and serve as family member-caretaker-disciplinarian-mentor.
