Program areas at Wayfinder Family Services

Group Homes for Children and Adults - Wayfinder operates five Group Homes in single family homes, each housing up to six children or six young adults with multiple disabilities. Residents receive round-the-clock care. All group homes are conveniently located in the South Los Angeles neighborhood near the Wayfinder campus so that young residents can attend the Special Education School, and all residents can use Wayfinder's recreational facilities or receive care from the 24-hour medical center in an emergency.

Foster Care and Adoption - This program matches children and youth who have been displaced from their homes due to abuse or neglect with families that can provide safe, caring homes. Our adoption services find loving, lifelong families for children in the child welfare system. Therapeutic, supportive services from Wayfinder ensure that children reach their greatest potential in safe, nurturing foster and permanent homes.

Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program - This program offers foster youth with acute medical and mental health needs in a highly structured residential program on our campus. In a nurturing, therapeutic setting, STRTP offers youth intensive, individualized mental health and nursing services so they can overcome challenges and reunite with family, move to a foster home or live independently.
