Services: Residential, Educational, Community-based
Cal Farley’s offers three types of services to children and families: residential, educational and community-based.
The residential, or campus-based, programs offer children a campus environment where children live in homes at Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch. Ten to 12 children live in the homes with house parent couples providing supervision, mentoring and parenting. Our basic-care services offer 24-hour supervision in a small community setting. Our single mothers program at Cal Farley’s Girlstown, U.S.A. offers a safe environment in which a mother and her children may live while the mother acquires the skills needed to achieve successful independence.
The educational programs provide the children and families on our campuses academic, athletic and extracurricular opportunities similar to those offered at other Texas public schools.
Our community-based services currently offer a variety of resources to children and families living in or near five Texas metropolitan areas, including Amarillo, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio; and in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Not all children require or would benefit from our residential services, but many families can benefit from our expertise without resorting to the challenges related to out-of-home placement.
