Mission Statement

To help troubled female children and youth who are abused, neglected or runaways, become independent, productive adults. To fulfill this mission, The Homes for Children Corporation provides a broad spectrum of educational, residential, independent living and mental health programs to a culturally diverse client population.

Description

The Homes for Children Corporation is a nonprofit organization that provides a home for children and life skill training for at-risk girls. The Homes for Children Corporation offers assistance to girls, frequently homeless, as they move from dependent, often abusive relationships into independent, self-sufficient lifestyles.

This is the city's only girls-only facility and the only one with long-term housing. All other shelters only offer 30 days or less of housing whereas The Homes for Children offers up to two years.

The facility provides clients with an eight-step program that teaches them necessary life skills. This collaborative approach to empowerment is the keystone to developing self-sufficiency in the clients. The steps include personal development, vocational training, substance abuse counseling, interpersonal skills building, community involvement, leisure activities, and independent living skills.
