Residential Based Services

El Nido Residential Campus

Hathaway-Sycamores El Nido residential campus is “home” to some 60 boys ages 6 to 18 years. The programs on campus include Foster Care and Adoption Services, Shelter Care and out-of-home care for boys with severe challenges that prevent them from living safely at home. At El Nido, the boys receive therapy for mental health issues and vocational training to give them tools for an independent future. While they prepare for a more permanent foster care placement or reunification with their family, they are cared for in a nurturing and positive environment.

Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP) provides short-term, high quality, intensive therapeutic services for boys who are 12 to 18 years old. This program has replaced traditional group homes for children who require intensive support and cannot be placed in a family setting. For information about the referral process, please email or call Suzann McIntire at 626-395-7100 ext. 6350 or Manuel Leiva at 626-395-7100 ext. 6312.
