Extended Placement Program
Casa Youth Shelter also has the capacity to house youth aged 12-17 for longer periods through our Extended Placement Program. In these cases, the residents are legal dependents of a county social services agency.
The Extended Placement Program offers a long-term structured home environment with many of the same services as the Temporary Shelter Program. Additionally, long term residents go to school, and have off-site privileges. Many of these residents, those older than 16 years, have part time jobs in addition to their school responsibilities, which Casa Youth Shelter encourages.
