Residential Treatment

For over 40 years, the United Methodist Youth Home (UMYH) has provided a Residential Treatment Program for youth ages 10 to 21. We currently operate two licensed group homes with a total of 17 beds, 8 for males and 9 for females. Our non-restrictive Residential Program puts an emphasis on developing pro-social behaviors, emotion regulation, personal responsibility, educational achievement, interpersonal effectiveness, and independent living skills.

At-risk youth

The Day Education Program is an intensive program for high-risk youth designed to provide a safe, highly structured, supervised environment in which to focus on education, cognitive restructuring, community service, independent living skills training, and family issues.

Target Population: Youth 14-19 years old, with other ages being accepted after review.

Students work at their own pace, using age-appropriate educational materials. Students work toward achieving their high school equivalency.
Each student receives a comprehensive mental health assessment upon intake.

Students attend a cognitive skills group each day, covering topics such as: self-acceptance, feelings, problem solving, decision making, healthy relationships and substance abuse.

Students attend group and individual meetings with the IL instructor to obtain vital documents, learn living skills, search for jobs, and explore higher education options.

Develop a comprehensive Treatment Plan to address the family and youth’s needs

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
