HCSA Dayspring

Journeying with Trauma Survivors

HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre offers a caring, safe and therapeutic environment to help teenage girls who have suffered the complex trauma of physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Through the application of effective clinical therapies, the centre strives to help these girls become healthy individuals who can successfully reintegrate into their schools, families and society.

In 2017, HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre successfully upgraded its quality of care by transiting to a Therapeutic Group Home service model for older girls with high needs and risks. The model consists of two evidence-based practices namely Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) and Residential Management System (RMS).

As of August 2020, HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre is a certified Trauma Systems Therapy (TST) programme.
