|A NON-PROFIT SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
Hart Community Homes Inc. was established
in 1996 by dedicated people who wanted more for their community's children.
Today, Hart Community Homes Inc. offers comprehensive services to Orange
County consumers in their homes and throughout the community.
We operate two state-licensed residential
treatment homes in Orange,
CA for boys ages 13-18. Our youth have a background of abuse,
parental alcoholism and drug addiction, family mental illness, neglect
the community integration of youth who have transitioned through the
foster care system and to create services which expand their opportunities
for personal freedom and choice. We serve some of the most at- risk
youth in this mistreated population. The youth we care for will eventually
come of age and emancipate out of the foster care system and become
productive citizens in our community.
When the boys are placed at Hart
Community Homes they have been removed from their homes because of
severe neglect, abandonment, or abuse. Within a supportive and therapeutic
environment, these young men are provided opportunities to gain insight
into themselves and acquire important problem solving and decision-making
skills. Our program specializes in assisting each resident in gaining
independent living skills before he is emancipated into the community.
Our goal is to make a positive change for this special population through:
- Prevention - Carry out programs of independent living skills, workforce development
training, education, and provide therapy, support, and self-awareness.
Wherever possible network with other centers of influence and affiliates.
- Placement - Provide long term support to children in dependency programs by
maintaining high quality standards at Hart Community Homes by providing
the children under our care with a small six bed family home setting,
offering them the opportunity to live and grow within the least restrictive,
yet highly structured therapeutic environment.
- Emancipation - Provide support to children leaving the dependency system through
such means as workforce development training, housing, transportation,
employment, mentoring and peer mentoring. Providing all services
necessary to ensure successful transition out of the system into
the community. To continue providing services, resources, and support
to emancipated adults in the community.
and Public Awareness - Carry out fundraising programs that will support
prevention, care, and emancipation, while at the same time educating
the public and motivating them to become directly involved in solutions
by providing funds for the Vocational Center and other efforts consistent
with our vision.
