The Onarga Acaemy’s Group Home provides a homelike environment for boys to complete their treatment, while getting ready to move back into the community. While at the Group Home, boys continue to address issues related to family, peer pressure dynamics, chemical use, technology challenges, vocational skills development, social skills development, independent living skills development, and healthy sexuality. Residents at the Onarga Academy group home participate in employment opportunities, as well as educational and extracurricular programs, both on campus and within the community.
Youth Served: The Lighthouse addresses the needs of girls, ages 12-21, who have completed an Indian Oaks Academy residential treatment program, but who are not ready to step down to a family setting. Clients typically reside at the Lighthouse for 12 to 18 months, with the goal of moving to a more independent living option like a transitional living place, or the return home to a client’s family.
