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.
