Our track record
Each year 500+ children and their families benefit from working with Youth Homes. Here’s how:
Advocating for Kids and Families
63% of the youth in our residential treatment programs met their treatment goals and moved to a lower level of care. That means they went home to family or friends, were placed successfully with a foster family or were independent enough to move out on their own. In some instances, young people continued residential care, but on a less intensive basis. Placement successes like these far outperform national standards.
Education That Transforms Lives
85% of the young people who left our residential program and participated in our Aftercare program have graduated high school or received their GED.
28% of young people who have experienced Aftercare are enrolled or enrolling in college. That’s a measurable jump over the 20% of foster youth nationwide who attend college. (Fostering Success in Education: National Factsheet on the Educational Outcomes of Children in Foster Care; Research Highlights on Education and Foster Care, January 2014)
74% of young people who participate in Youth Homes’ Workforce Development program landed jobs.
Home at Last
66% of our foster family clients discharged in the last six months were placed in permanent, adoptive homes.
Surveys of Youth Homes clients reveal that they are doing better on every front: fewer hospitalizations, reduced incidents of self-harm, aggressive behaviors, drug dependency and sexual exploitation.
“Therapeutic Behavioral Services has helped me through my darkest days that even I thought I was never going to get through...they stayed positive about it through my negativity.”
Youth Homes carefully tracks outcomes and results. What we learn in this process enables us to continuously improve our services and programs, and identify areas of need.
