Residential Youth Homes
KYJO currently has four level-12 residential homes throughout Fresno, and Clovis California providing 24-hour care for young men and women (ages 12-17 and non-minor dependents) who are wards of the juvenile court and/or social service system. Two of our homes care for young women and the other two care for young men. Many of these youth come from broken families and have a history of poor educational and social backgrounds. However, most of the young men and women have hope of avoiding escalating violence, drugs, and prison. We understand that all are diverse and unique in their own way and because of this, we give every one of them the best of care through our programs and services.
KYJO empowers youth to develop life skills and the self-confidence to change the destructive behavior that landed them in our care. Our goal is to prepare them to reunify with their families and re-enter society as productive members in their communities.
Positive exposure is a major component of our program. Relationships are built by our Executive Director and staff, guest speakers which include business men and women, professional athletes, and various members of the community that come in to lend encouragement to our residents. Numerous activities and recreational opportunities are also set up for residents throughout the year. These opportunities and outings consist of camping trips, sporting events, plays, musicals, museums, trips to theme parks, and much more.
