Be the 1st choice for referrals and funders in providing quality care for children and families.
Trinity Youth Services provides exceptional foster care, residential treatment and mental health services to children who have been removed from their homes by child protective services due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, unsafe living conditions and/or family instability or who are wards of the court. Children ranging in age from infancy to age twenty-one are matched with loving foster families who are certified and trained through Trinity's foster care certification program. Adjudicated youth are placed in residential treatment centers designed to meet their specific needs. Our programs are recognized as being among the best in the field of child care services.
In 1966, Trinity Youth Services began as Guadalupe Homes for Boys, providing shelter and support to six at-risk youth from the Los Angeles area. That small program has grown and expanded from the original six children to a comprehensive children's services agency, serving troubled youth in residential treatment, foster care and mental health programs.
Many of the children in our care, who range in age from birth to twenty-one, have suffered from abuse, trauma, neglect and/or abandonment. As a result, they often develop emotional and behavioral challenges. To assist children in confronting and triumphing over these challenges, each Trinity residential program offers a full range of services - therapeutic, recreational, educational and vocational, as well as independent living skills. Our trained and experienced staff works closely with our children using proven individual and group therapies, evidenced-based practices. Each program has a recreational program that includes athletics, arts and crafts, games, multi-media and other enriching activities.
The children in care have special needs as a result of exposure to violence, drug and alcohol abuse and unsafe living conditions. Trinity Youth Services provides residential treatment for children with emotional and behavioral challenges. Trinity offers a structured environment with a highly effective therapeutic regimen, including individual and group therapy, as well as on-site therapists.
Trinity Youth Services also provides exceptional foster care and mental health services to children who have been removed from their homes by child protective services due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, unsafe living conditions and/or family instability. Children ranging in age from infancy to age twenty-one are matched with loving foster families who are certified and trained through Trinity's foster care certification program, which is one of the best in the field of child care services.
Trinity staff works closely with a team of dedicated foster parents to ensure a quality placement for both the child and the foster family. Trinity also provides care to children with unique circumstances such as sibling sets, foster teen mothers and foster youth with emancipation and/or transitional needs. Trinity also provides intensive treatment foster care services and operates its own adoption agency.
