Home Model

OUR MARIANA HOME MODEL

 We pro‐actively select pre-school age children facing the most significant barriers to future success. Using a rigorous process, validated by research as effective for identifying children most at risk, we select directly from both schools and the foster care system. Mariana Home has a unique ability to establish relationships with children who are the hardest to reach. We provide selected children with intensive, individualized guidance from full‐time, highly trained, salaried mentors (House Parents) for 18 years.

Treatment Methods

The Mariana Home provides 24-hour care, supervision, and treatment to at risk child and youth in a group home setting as part of the youth’s transition to independence, reunification with their family. This is for at risk children (both male and female) aged 1½ to 18 whose family situations, or social or developmental issues preclude them from living at home or in a less restrictive setting and who display moderate behavioral, psychological, neurobiological or emotional problems are placed in the home. The Mariana Home provides a planned program of group living in a community-based setting with regular involvement in community-based education, recreational and occupational activities. Youth also receive mental health service, independent living skills support, and educational support.
