who we are.
Boys and Girls Home and Family Services, Inc.’s programs provide a safe, effective, therapeutic living environment for children ages 6-18 who are experiencing emotional, mental health and behavior challenges.
The average length of stay for treatment is 3 to 6 months. Individualized treatment for each of our clients includes improving their psychological, emotional and academic functioning.
