Cal Farley's is one of America's largest privately-funded child and family service providers specializing in both residential and community-based services at no cost to the families of children in our care.
Cal Farley’s offers three types of services to children and families: residential, educational and community-based.
The residential, or campus-based, program 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 the Genie Farley Harriman Center for Women and Children 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 children and families on our campuses have access to academic, athletic and extracurricular opportunities similar to those offered at other Texas public schools.
Our community based services offer a variety of resources to children and families living in or near six metropolitan areas in Texas and Oklahoma, including Amarillo, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City. Not all children require or would benefit from our residential services, but many families can benefit from our service without resorting to the challenges related to out-of-home placement.
