Our Mission at Youth Home, Inc.
Youth Home, Inc. is a non-profit psychiatric treatment center for emotionally troubled adolescents and their families. Our mission is to equip and empower youth, adults, and families to become healthier and contributing members of the community by providing compassionate emotional and behavioral health care.
Our Therapy Programs
Our premier programs are comprehensive and successful at treating hard to deal with behavioral disorders like Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Sexual Reactivity, Sexual Abuse Trauma, and more. Youth Home is a 501(c) (3) Non Profit Organization. In general, it costs more to care for the kids in our programs than we make from donations, insurances, etc., so your donation means that we can continue to provide the pivotal care these kids need.
Who We Serve
Our patients come from all over the world. This year we had patients from 26 states and three countries including Indonesia, Germany and the United States. Read more on our patients:
- Intensive Residential Treatment patients are ages 12-17.
- Qualified Residential Treatment patients are girls ages 12-17 and boys ages 10-17 who are in the Department of Children and Family Services custody.
- BHSA School-Based patients are children who need behavioral treatment in local schools.
- BHSA Outpatient patients are people of any age in need of therapy.
- We also have room for students ages 12-17 in need of specialized therapies.
Many individuals and families do not qualify for funding assistance or do not have adequate insurance to pay for treatment. While Medicaid covers a portion of the daily expenses for our 78 residential patients, there is still a shortfall that totals nearly $1.5 million per year. Your gift reduces costs, allowing Youth Home to help those who need help the most. Join our effort to change lives and save families.

Fund A Program
Help fund specialized treatment approaches like equine therapy. Equine therapy is a life changing opportunity. Youth Home's partnership with another nonprofit enhances the life skills of our teens through teamwork with the horses and staff as well as incorporating weekly confidence building activities in a recreational setting.
We continually seek new and inventive ways to provide therapy for patients. Equine therapy lessons help adolescents advance in their individualized treatment plans and become healthier contributing members of our community.
