The Program

Orange County Mentors for Youth provides a variety of therapeutic interventions to address the needs of our residents.

  • We provide weekly individual therapy with a licensed psychologist.
  • All residents are assessed for substance abuse issues. A weekly substance abuse group is facilitated by a Marriage and Family Therapist.
  • Residents are also provided Anger Management group therapy as necessary.
  • During the school year a tutor comes to the home two days per week to meet with each resident to ensure they are meeting their educational goals.
  • Those residents requiring psychotropic medication are seen by a psychiatrist at least one time per month.
  • Residents age 15.5 or greater will participate in Independent Livings Skills programing through the Orangewood Children's Foundation and additional ILP activities within the homes.
