Residential Treatment Program
Penny Lane operates residential treatment facilities in the San Fernando Valley, including ten satellite group homes and one 45 bed facility for teenage girls. Youth are referred to Penny Lane by the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services or the Los Angeles County Probation Department. We offer an array of therapeutic services and enrichment programs for each child to address his/her experience of abuse, abandonment, and/or neglect. Often when children enter the foster care system, they have suffered considerable trauma, their immediate welfare is at-risk and they present with a wide range of behaviors and psychosocial needs. Therefore, Penny Lane has established the following priorities for the residential program to focus on:
Safety or freedom from abuse and injury.
Permanency or assisting the child and significant others to establish a safe and stable, nurturing relationship achieved through reunification, adoption, relative guardianship or other legal guardianship.
Well-Being or ensuring educational, life skills, medical, dental, psychological and psychiatric well-being.
The purpose of the Penny Lane Residential Program is to provide each child with an individualized treatment or needs and service plan that will identify the client and family’s strengths and successfully work with a child and family’s presenting issues while ensuring the child’s safety, permanency and well-being.
