Group Homes and Community Residences
Providing teens with the opportunity to learn daily-living skills and develop personal responsibility and self-reliance through community living is the focus at our three group homes and community residences.
We operate one co-ed group home in Monroe County for youth ages 16 to 21 who have been placed in foster care or campus residential care by the county or court system. These young adults have been through traumatic experiences and need support, structure, nurturing and coaching to help make healthy decisions about behavior and relationships. Outcomes are individualized to meet the unique needs of each client, such as completing high school, securing employment, or attending college.
Our co-ed community residence in Wayne County serves youth ages 13 to 18 who are able to step down from a higher level of care for serious mental health challenges. The primary goal is to help teens manage their mental illness so that they can return to live with their family. Psychiatric services and individual and group therapy helps teens and family members learn how to manage emotions to prevent violence, self harm or other unhealthy behaviors.
Our Young Mother Program is the only one of its kind in Monroe County. Placed with us by Family Court, young moms ages 12 to 21 live with their infants and toddlers while receiving specialized care and learning independent living skills. A focus on intense instruction on parenting incorporates Teenage Parent Support Services as well as professional development for our staff through the Child Care Council.
