Through our residential program, Boys and Girls Homes serves children who are in need of a long-term placement, preferably at least one school year, due to family dysfunctions, parental incapacity or unmanageable behavioral problems in the home.
Many of our residents have experienced physical and verbal abuse, neglect and even sexual abuse.
Although we are licensed to serve children between the ages of 6 and 21, the majority of kids living on campus are teenagers. To be eligible for our residential services program, children must be able to live in a non-secure, non-therapeutic environment without posing a risk to themselves or to others. For detailed eligibility requirements, please see Admissions & Referral Information.
Boys and Girls Homes offers seven cottage-style homes, each of which can accommodate up to nine children.
Through Boys and Girls Homes’ community-based services, deserving children of all ages are placed with foster families that are licensed through the state. We work with the Department of Social Services and consultants to help meet the needs of the children. Community-based services include family foster care, therapeutic foster care, adoption and confidential intermediary programs.
