Our Values:

Kids’ needs come first … always.

  • Children are raised best by their families.
  • We provide a safe place.
  • We strive to achieve positive, lasting results.

  • We do what we say we do.

Who We Treat

We help youth who challenge traditional mental and behavioral health solutions.

Finding help for youth with specific challenges can be difficult. Youth Villages’ residential treatment centers for boys and girls ages 6 to 17 provide treatment in the context of a variety of specialized conditions and behaviors.

How We Treat

We believe residential treatment should be short term.

At Youth Villages, our guiding vision is a commitment to stepping youth down to the least restrictive treatment option possible—preferably back to a family or other home-like setting.

Why We’re Different

We have more than 30 years of experience doing what works.

Founded in 1986, Youth Villages has gained a national reputation for the tracking and measurement of outcomes – the foundation of effective treatment models.
