About Youth Home

Our History

Founded in 1966, Youth Home, Inc., located in Little Rock, Arkansas, is a private non-profit mental health provider. In the mid-1980's, Youth Home's program developed into a medical model directed by child and adolescent psychiatrists. Our continuum of care includes adolescent residential and community based treatment, day treatment, and school-based services, as well as outpatient services for individuals of all ages. Youth Home, Inc. is accredited by The Joint Commission, the nation's oldest and largest accrediting body for healthcare providers. Youth Home addresses a need in the State of Arkansas for quality healthcare for individuals and families.

In the fiscal year 2013-14, 767 individual clients received services from Youth Home, Inc. programs.
