The Residential Group Home program at The Ranch at Riverhead cares for boys and girls, ages 11-17, that are in need of a therapeutic environment. Most of these children come to Timothy Hill during a desperate time of abuse, neglect and crisis. Timothy Hill allows these young people to experience healing and begin to dream of future possibilities. Our goal is to provide children with skills and strategies to return home or become self-sufficient at the age of 18. Although we have a structured program, with 24-7 care in three different homes, each approach is individualized. Most residents in the Group Home program are referred by the Department of Social Services: Foster Care Division and the Office of Family and Children Services in Nassau, Suffolk and Rockland counties. Private placements are also welcomed.
