Group Homes for Christian Troubled Teens

Strugglingteens.co represents Christian parents seeking group homes for their troubled child.  What is a group home?  Essentlally, group homes are licensed therapeutic facilities that are based in a family-style setting. There are two types of group homes.  There are government endorsed (or government run) group homes serving the needs of the community.  Government=based group homes typically provide services to the city or county; residential services for Child Protection Services (crisis safe homes), therapeutic foster care (group homes for children who have been removed from their home), or kids in the juvenile justice system (adjudicated teens placed by probation or the juvenile courts).  The second type of group home is a privately-owned therapeutic home providing residential treatment care to placed by parents (without government assistance). 

Privately owned and operated group homes are typically superior to what you would find at local city or county run group home. Group homes for troubled teens (both troubled boys and troubled girls) are typically government-based programs (city, county, or state).  They are also typically underfunded, under served, and staffed by non-professionals who do the best they can under the circumstances. Typically, the government-base homes do not provide a Christian experience.

For Christian parents seeking a Christ-centered experience the best option is to look at privately owned group homes specializing in residential treatment of boys or girls.  More specifically, Christian parents should look to 
Christian Group Homes.  This type of program is typically supported by a local church, or owned and operated by a Christian owner.  When parents are looking for help for their troubled child there are Christ-centered options that work.  We recommend to Christian parents be very selective, and seek the help of professional people to assist in finding the right home.
