Since 1965 Youth Homes has helped transform the lives of young people, led by our
vision of a world where former foster kids lead healthy, productive lives.
Mission: Youth Homes provides a safe place for foster youth to heal and grow.
Our agency is the oldest continually operating children’s residential program in
Contra Costa County. While the original Youth Homes model of group homes remains at
the heart of who we are, we have also evolved to meet the changing needs of the children
and families we serve. In addition to intensive residential programs, we provide a variety
of community-based mental health services to youth, which includes fully integrated post-
residential treatment support, family-based and Transitional Age Youth services.
