Casa de Belen provides a stable environment for youth to stabilize, stay in school, resolve conflict, learn new self-management skills, connect with safe adults and receive guidance and support while developing a safe exit plan through individual case management. Youth can choose to move towards family re-unification, alternative family living, or pursue self-sufficiency. All services provided are available to youth ages 12-17, are confidential, and free of charge.
