Group Home Program

The Youth for Change Group Home Program is designed for boys ages 11-17 and girls ages 11-17, whose levels of function at home, school or in the community warrant the intensive intervention afforded by a residential program. Common emotional and behavioral problems of youth served include: depression, anxiety, physical and/or sexual abuse, anti-social behavior, unresolved grief reaction, truancy, running away and family system's issues.

Youth for Change Group Home Staff embrace and support the belief that youth can learn to better control his/her emotional and behavioral responses in an environment that is highly structured while simultaneously nurturing and accepting. A structured environment is necessary until youth develop the necessary ego strength to exercise internal controls that support safe, pro-social and healthy decision making. A placement's success is supported through interactive engagement in healthy relational exchanges with treatment staff in the therapeutic milieu. Licensed clinicians provide adjunctive, individual, group and family therapy which offer youth venues to learn and practice relational skills to support higher levels of functioning at home, school and in the community.

All Youth for Change Group Home Staff will be trained in the highly effective Therapeutic Crisis Intervention Model embraced by Youth for Change. Contact 530-877-1965 for more information.
