Community Group Residences

Group homes are a vital option in providing the most appropriate level of care for our children. Serving as both an alternative to placement in a large residential facility and as a step between residential placement and a child’s return to his or her community, group homes provide structure and guidance in a family-like, neighborhood setting. New Directions Community-Based Group Residences include: Westons Mills (Westons Mills, NY); Chautauqua County (Falconer, NY); and the Zafron Home for Parenting Teens (Salamanca, NY).
