Review for Youth Homes Incorporated, Walnut Creek, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Youth Homes is an organization that touches the heart. It reaches out to youngsters who really need help, youngsters in the Foster Care system that don’t have a chance in life without a home, the love, the care, the training, and the mentoring provided by Youth Homes . To visit these kids when they first arrive in the homes, kids who have been beaten and abused in every way possible, kids who have been dealt a bad card in life and have no idea why and no longer trust anyone, is heart wrenching.
With loving care Youth Homes rebuilds their self-esteem, ensures school attendance and provides a stable home, one they will not be turned away from, no matter what. Youth Homes teaches self-respect and responsibility and care that are provided twenty four hours a day, seven days a week by dedicated counselors.
It is overwhelming to visit with many youth who have graduated out of Youth Homes and are now living a successful, independent and meaningful life.
