Providing Care, Counseling & Treatment to Our Most Vulnerable Children
For more than 40 years, Namaqua Center has provided care, counseling, treatment, and healing to our most vulnerable children.
These children have lived through trauma, have severe behavior challenges, or live with diagnosable mental illnesses. Each of them deserves a chance to transcend his or her current circumstances to the extent possible.
At Namaqua, our children-centered, community-based programs assist children and families in developing and maintaining stability and healthy levels of functioning.

Family Support Programs
Family Support Coaching – Coaches are assigned to a youth based on common interests and compatibility. Coaches will work with the youth in their home and community to address goals and practice skills identified by the youth, family, and therapist. Interventions are based on the unique needs of each youth and family and may involve one on one coaching, parental support, and community-based activities.
Wondercamp is a skill-building program for young clients with serious mental illness who require structure and support during extended school holidays. Through clinical groups, games, and activities children are provided an opportunity to practice social skills and receive immediate feedback on their behaviors and interactions.
Respite provides a break for families of children with high-risk behavioral and mental health issues. Children have the opportunity to participate in fun, age-appropriate activities with their peers while their adult caretakers can step away from providing for the ongoing needs of their child and care for themselves.
The SPOT is an after-school program for adolescent clients that provides a safe place to learn new skills and tools to enhance their lives. Clients work on identifying personal strengths and challenges, building social support, and expanding the skills needed to maneuver through the world with a serious mental illness.
