We are a Rate Classification Level 12 group home that provides support to teen girls ages 13-18. We primarily house pregnant and parenting teens, although we do accept non-pregnant and non-parenting teens. We have the capability to house up to 32 teens and 18 babies. All of our residents are either part of Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) or Probation and are referred by their social worker or probation officer.

Many of our residents have dealt with sexual abuse, physical abuse, verbal abuse, and/or neglect. Residents served were either detained from their parents, family members, or guardians and are working towards family reunification, adoption, legal guardianship, or permanent placement. As St. Anne’s staff in the Residential Treatment Program, we offer support, counseling, and interventions to all of our residents and we help our residents reach independence. Each of our residents are at different stages in their life so we work to meet each individual resident where they are at in order to provide the most effective care.

We provide individual counseling with an assigned therapist, educational counseling, life skills and parenting classes. Each of our residents receives complete medical care from outside medical facilities. We also strongly encourage education, and our residents are all enrolled in either school full time or a job/internship.

We are looking for passionate employees that are interested in working with our clientele. As Residential staff, we are working with the residents to become self-sufficient in order to eventually transition.
