The group home facility has grown from its initial 10 residents to six cottages, each housing 12 children. Mental health treatment services are provided to every resident. The Haynes Education Center, a non-public school founded in 1989 as a companion to the group home facility, initially provided schooling to the children of what was formerly LeRoy Boys Home. It has grown to serve not only the children who live on campus but the community as a whole, accepting children (boys and girls) from 14 school districts throughout Southern California.
Our UP4Youth program (Unlimited Possibilities for Youth) supports these young adults (ages 16-26) during this vulnerable time to help counter these negative effects, teaching them basic life skills and connecting them to the resources they need to reach their fullest potential. There are four primary components to the program: resource coordination, educational planning, employment, and mentoring.
We provide each client with professional attire to secure employment, but we are about much more than simply a new outfit. Besides physically equipping the client with apparel and accessories, our programs furnish her with a confidence that she carries forever and the knowledge that she can actively define her life, the direction she takes and what success means to her.

The Alliance’s primary objective is to provide stability to foster children and those at risk of entering foster care by helping them obtain healthcare, educational services and financial support so that more of them reach permanency through adoption, legal guardianship or by returning safely to their biological families. For those youth who do age out of the system without a family, we have built a core program designed to give this population the tools and guidance they need to live independently.
