Homme Admissions

Admissions Information

Admissions criteria

Homme welcomes male residents between the ages of 10 and 21 (18 to 21 on a juvenile order). Homme staff carefully review each referral and conduct a face-to-face admissions screen. At Homme, we’re committed to quality care and work to assure that we match each individual to the appropriate program to achieve the most successful outcomes. 

We ensure that our staff will treat your Homme referral with dignity, confidentiality and respect in our care. That’s our philosophy – to treat each youth as a unique individual.

“Everyone at Homme – from the teachers and therapists to the unit leaders, from the administrators to the kitchen staff – understands trauma-informed care. In fact, our kitchen staff is a great example. They know that simply going through the lunch line here can be hard for children who may have been traumatized by bullies in the cafeteria at a former school. They understand that every interaction we have with these children is important.” 

– Heather Yaeger, Regional Director
