Group Care

Holston Home operates a variety of group-care programs ranging from less structured community-based homes to highly structured residential treatment setting. These programs are part of the agency’s larger Continuum of Care providing foster family and adoption services, day treatment, and intensive in-home services with birth families.

Our goal is to provide individualized attention to each youth’s educational, behavioral, spiritual, and mental health needs while moving toward placement in a permanency setting.

Every group care facility is staffed with trained teacher-counselors who provide direct care and supervision. These staff are supported by Child and Family Specialists, program directors and supervisors, mental health professionals, adventure-based counselors, and a Director of Christian Life.

Referrals may come from private families, state custodial agencies, and other area provider agencies. Fees are negotiated with state agencies and insurance companies; private families pay for services on a sliding scale based on income.
