Children / Youth Services
The Mission of ACES Youth Home is to provide temporary and long-term residential placement and care for youths, both boys and girls, ages 11-18. We provide a safe, secure, and nurturing home for youths who have been victims or abuse or neglect. We help children discover their strengths and
learn to cope with the crises in their lives. We strive to recognize the value and dignity of each individual we serve.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
