Residential Youth Homes
KYJO currently operates four Level 14 STRTP residential homes throughout Fresno and Clovis, California providing 24-hour care for young men and women (age 12-17 and non-minor dependents) who are wards of the juvenile court or social service system. Two of our homes care for young women, and the other two care for young men.
Many of these youth come from broken families and have a history of poor educational and social backgrounds. However, most of these young men and women have hope of avoiding escalating violence, drugs, and prison. We understand that all are unique in their own way and because of this, we give every child the best of care through our programs and services.
KYJO empowers youth to develop life skills and the self-confidence to change the destructive behavior that landed them in our care. Our goal is to prepare them to reunify with their families and re-enter society as productive members of their communities.
Positive exposure is a major component of our program. Relationships are built by our Executive Director and staff, guest speakers, professional athletes, and various members of the community who lend encouragement to our residents. We also conduct numerous activities and provide recreational opportunities throughout the year. These opportunities and outings consist of camping trips, sporting events, plays, musicals, museums, trips to theme parks, and much more.
