Residential Care

Village Ranch began as a Residential Care facility for teenage boys, and today our Residential Program remains an important point in our care continuum. With locations in Cokato, Hutchinson and Rochester, Minnesota, we are able to provide age-appropriate therapy and programming for teen boys in a positive, nurturing environment.

Our Cokato residence for boys age 12-18:

Our residents are referred through the county.  While in residential care, we work toward the goal of returning boys to their homes and help adolescents who are struggling with a range of mental health and behavior issues:

  • Oppositional defiant and conduct disorder
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Bipolar and mood disorders
  • Mild chemical dependency

Residence is also offered to children in need of protective services (CHIPS).

Residential care includes:

  • On-site individual, group and family therapy to address specific behaviors
  • Programming that includes social skills and anger management
  • Peer accountability groups
  • Opportunity to complete court-ordered community service
  • The option to attend a local school
  • Religion education (optional)
  • Chemical dependency counseling

Our Hutchinson and Rochester locations for boys age 15-19:

 

Our Hutchinson and Rochester group homes focus on building the independent living skills of teenage boys, age 15 to 19 so they may successfully return to the community.  These residents enter our program voluntarily, through court order, or through the Child in Need of Protective Services (CHIPS) program.  While in residence, they benefit from a multi-disciplinary team to give them support, structure and therapy to limit the risk of detrimental behavior.

 

Residential Care includes:

  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Life skills coaching, including money management, meals and nutrition, personal appearance and hygiene, health, housekeeping, education, job seeking, birth control, parenting and more
  • A requirement to attend the local public school (for those who have not graduated from high school or do not have a GED)
  • The option to receive a post-secondary education (for those with a high school diploma or GED)
  • Ongoing employment skills and learning
