Serving Adjudicated Youth

We strive to protect the dignity of our youth and tap into their potential, aspirations, talents, and resilience.

Catholic Charities San Francisco Boys’ Homes is a longstanding community-based program serving adjudicated youth between the ages of 13-17. A short-term residential therapeutic program (STRTP), we have a residential home in San Francisco where at-risk adolescents receive the specialized support, understanding, compassion, and services they need to restore trust, integrate into their communities, and transform their lives.

Using a strength-based approach that focuses on resilience, resourcefulness, positivity, and the needs of our youth, we include families and other community-based organizations as partners in the rehabilitation and acclimation process of our youth.

Ours is a holistic approach where we combine individual, family, and/or group therapy, educational assistance in partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District, and extracurricular, employment, and transportation support to engage and inspire our youth.

Licensed by the California Department of Social Services and Community Care Licensing Division, our San Francisco Boys’ Homes program is supervised 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The approximate length of stay varies between short-term (3-4 months) or long-term (6-9 months).

At San Francisco Boys’ Homes, we strive to protect the dignity of our youth and tap into their potential, aspirations, talents, and resilience.
