Description:Four types of youth residences address a range of service needs of at-risk adolescents. Our Diagnostic Center provides short-term care (up to 90 days) for youngsters in crisis, including complete diagnostic assessments, short-term therapy and temporary shelter while plans are made for their futures. Six mother/infant residences allow teen mothers to keep their babies while they learn parenting skills, complete high school and prepare for employment in a supportive, supervised environment. Our group homes provide a supportive family environment offering long-term care, individual and group therapy and academic skills building. At our Transitional Living Home, older adolescents have greater independence while still receiving the support and supervision they need.
