Alternative Homes for Youth (AHFY) is a non profit state-licensed residential treatment organization dedicated to helping sexually abused and abusive youth and their families find new hope and opportunity. The youth that we work with have all experienced extensive trauma in their lives, ranging from sexual and physical abuse to neglect and abandonment. The majority of the youth that we work with come to us from low-income homes. Many are members of minority ethnic groups. An integral component to our treatment is the integration of family into the therapeutic services that we provide. Our services include intensive individual, group and family therapy, sexual offense therapy, survivors of sexual abuse therapeutic group, mentoring, life skills, emancipation services, drug and alcohol treatment, on-site alternative education programs and diagnostic services, parent education and treatment.
