Foster Care

In Butte and Shasta County, we have a dedicated staff of social workers that offer a distinctive family centered team approach to foster care. Offices in Chico and Anderson provide a full range of support services to children, their birth families and our own exceptional foster parents. Our main goal is permanence for the children.

Group Home Care

Odyssey & Passages in Chico offer a unique emancipation readiness experience. A talented, live-in staff supported by a program manager and social worker provide a unique relationship-based atmosphere for older adolescents. Self-reliance and positive transitions are always the desired end.

Shelter Care

Youth & Family and Butte County are working together to provide safe, initial shelter for children removed from their homes. The goal is to provide time to be sure the next placement is the best placement.

Independent Living: Butte County -Shasta County

Our approach to ILP offers one-on-one and small group emancipation readiness training and support to foster and former foster children aged 16 to 21. An energetic staff of caseworkers reach out and offer assistance to adolescents struggling with the transition to independence.

Family Center

Our Redding visitation center is an accumulation of all that we have learned in working with families. The center is a supportive encouraging environment for children and the important people in their lives. The Family Center is the place where children and caregivers can relax in the company of each other, and to receive support in the development of additional parenting skills. The center also provides parenting classes. Classes are focused on the strengths and needs of individuals. Class subjects include topics such as; self-esteem, positive discipline, child development, and more.
