RESIDENTIAL GROUP HOMES
WHO WE SERVE
La Paloma’s residential treatment programs serve boys and girls who have been abused or neglected and referred to the program by the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES).
Although our group homes provide long-term care, one of our primary responsibilities is to work with each youngster to develop the necessary skills to move to a more independent living situation.
For younger residents, group homes are often temporary placements, providing care until the child can return to their natural family or until a foster family can be secured.

One of the goals of group home living is to increase the independence of young residents.Staff members teach youngsters daily living and self-care skills. Daily living skills include meal preparation, laundry, housecleaning, home maintenance, money management, and appropriate social interactions. Self-care skills include bathing or showering, dressing, toileting, eating, and taking prescribed medications.
