Family-style care for teens

New Directions’ Westons Mills Group Home is a six-bed facility
for boys located near Olean, NY, in the Town of Portville. It is housed in a cozy, two-story colonial on a large, partially wooded, semi-rural lot.

Youths who live at the group home receive individual and family therapy with a social worker, full-service medical and dental care, recreation and leisure programming, and access to community-based drug and alcohol counseling. Residents are also assisted in finding part-time employment in the area.
Many group home residents face the challenge of establishing their own independent residences within the coming few years or, in some cases, months.

All residents receive formal and informal training in Skills for Independent Living, including money management; nutrition; shopping for food and clothing; household chores; dealing with people, businesses and authorities in the community; personal safety and responsibility, and finding and keeping a job. After completion of the program, young men will be better equipped to handle the challenge of living independently.

Group home residents must be able to attend public school. They must also have the skills and attitudes needed to live successfully in a small-group setting and to become active participants in the community.
