More than 80% of youth served by Youth Villages’ intensive in-home services programs have remained
successfully in the home at least one year after receiving services.
YOUTH VILLAGES’ GEORGIA OPERATIONS
Youth Villages entered Georgia in 2008 at the request of the commis-
sioner of the child welfare agency. The state, and specifically its two largest counties, were under a lawsuit that required a more intense
focus on the delivery of home-based services and a push to reduce the
number of children in out-of-home placements and the duration of those
placements. As a result, Youth Villages opened an office in Atlanta, serving DeKalb and Fulton counties with our Intercept program.
In addition to our work with the state to address specific milestones in its lawsuit, Youth Villages also merged with an existing provider in Georgia, Inner Harbour, to expand our presence in the state and preserve the needed intensive residential services that organization provides.

Group homes allow young people to receive mental health support while they learn to live successfully in the community. Residents are assisted with developing independent living skills and utilizing com-munity resources.
Transitional living provides young people leaving the foster care, juve-
nile justice and mental health systems the intensive in-home support
and guidance they need to make a successful transition to adulthood.
Youth Villages provides a continuum of services in partnership with
the Department of Juvenile Justice that allows for youth to move
through the levels of care as needed while working toward perma-
nence for youth and families. If necessary, the Youth Villages con-
tinuum program offers a short-term placement for stabilization on the
Inner Harbour Campus while the Intercept family intervention spe-
cialist works with the family for a smooth and safe transition home.
Upon the youth’s return home or when a stabilization placement is
not needed, the Intercept program offers services to the youth and
family with the goal of long-term permanence.
