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.
The teen residents at the East Palo Alto Teen Home pursue mandatory educational goals and work towards receiving a high school education. They are also encouraged to further their education by either attending a technical training school or college. Our teen residents are involved in community service projects and social enrichment activities that help them to build strong work ethics and connections to the East Palo Alto community.
At the East Palo Alto Teen Home, we offer an array of services that are designed to provide all resident teen mothers with children to live in a safe, clean, alcohol/drug-free, and supportive home environment—under the care of twenty-four hour supervision of experienced staff and therapeutic counselors. Our program services include Independent Living Skills Program provided by San Mateo County and Individual Therapeutic Counseling, along with the day-to-day personal training that is provided by our highly trained staff.
