COMMON REASONS FOR GROUP HOME PLACEMENT
The children placed into group homes have typically experienced significant emotional, physical, and/or social hardships prior to placement. There is often a history of abuse by a family member or sibling in the child’s life. Children in group homes may have come through probation, county mental health, or child welfare services.
Children in our facilities often have extreme need for care and assistance in every aspect of their lives. This includes: emotional, social and physical development; education; role modeling and the establishment of socially acceptable behaviors; assistance in caring for medical or psychiatric illnesses; and the development into an independent and happy young adult. Although each case is very unique the following is a list (in no particular order) of some common reasons/factors that lead to placement into a group home.
