"The one thing Bellefaire doesn't feel like is an institution, medical facility or anything remotely close to that. You feel like you're on a suburban college campus."
Bellefaire JCB is located on 32 park-like acres in Shaker Heights, an eastern suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. At any given time our campus has the sounds and sites of youth and teens who attend school through our Monarch Center for Autism programs, participate in after school and summer group counseling, come for outpatient counseling or psychiatry sessions, or live on our campus in a residential treatment cottage or transitional and independent living apartment.
In addition to hundreds of employees who work in the main administration building, you can often see a foster parent receiving training, a new family preparing to meet their adoptive child, or our volunteer mentors holding an activity with their Littles.
Our rich history and sincere dedication of our staff is what adds to the warmth you will experience when you visit our campus.
To provide direct access to families in Lorain County, we have an office in Elyria, Ohio - a 10 minute drive from downtown Cleveland. Our staff from the main campus are often at this office and there is a cohesive, seamless approach to our treatment and services.
Focused on a variety of counseling and community-based services, the Lorain County team provides psychiatry and outpatient counseling from our office, therapy services in clients' homes and throughout the county's school through our school-based counseling program.
