The East Palo Alto Teen Home, Inc. is a California-licensed group home for six teenagers and teenage mothers with children, ages 0 to 17 years of age. Our goal is to help our teen residents to become fully functioning members of society by providing access to social, educational, and employment opportunities that exist within and outside of the community of East Palo Alto.


In celebration of the 21st Anniversary of the East Palo Alto Teen Home, the organization launched, organized, and raised funds to take a group of (15) youth and (5) staff and volunteers from the East Palo Alto Teen Home and community-at-large, during the week of April 13—20, 2013, to experience a first-ever “Tools of Empowerment Tour” to Washington, DC, Arlington, Virginia, and College Park, Maryland. Thanks to community support and financial donations from a host of individuals, businesses, organizations, corporations, foundations, and other funding sources, this dream was realized and very successful. It is still being talked about by all of the participants, to this day.


Sheila George Receives The 2014 Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Women of Influence Award
Founder and Executive Director of East Palo Alto Teen Home, Inc.

After Sheila George's son was murdered in 1988, she was determined to keep other youth from sharing that fate and opened her home to at-risk teenage girls in crisis.

By 1992, she opened the East Palo Alto Teen Home as a group home for female teens and teenage mothers in San Mateo County. The group home was the first of its kind in East Palo Alto. It provides support services, education and life skills to teenage girls from Child Protective Services and Juvenile Detention Centers from various counties.
