Serving as a “step down,” The Village’s Eagle House psychiatric residential treatment facility provides comprehensive and intensive behavioral health treatment for children ages 6-12 transitioning from psychiatric hospitalization.
One of the people who helps make Eagle House a safe, comfortable place for children to call home during their stay is Rohan Thompson, one of our residential supervisors. In this role, Rohan works directly with children who struggle with significant emotional or behavioral difficulties to help them prepare for community-based treatment and a family or foster care setting. Additionally, he works with staff to manage the day-to-day work at Eagle House and foster development among the team.
Rohan has been with The Village for 10 years, and has worked as a direct care staff and shift leader before assuming his current role. Before starting at The Village, he spent 8 years at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford (in the roles of athletic director, program director and unit director) and 6 years at Klingberg Family Center (as a part of the direct care staff). He received his Bachelor’s degree in English from Eastern Connecticut State University.
Rohan is certified in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention and as a Children and Residential Experiences (CARE) Trainer. He also serves as a mentor in our Foster Care and Fatherhood programs.
