Our History

In the late 1950s the Milhous family, our founders, provided a home and vocational training for foster children on their ranch in Nevada City, California. Since then we have played a crucial role in the state by providing a safety net for children and youth who require group-home care and treatment. We currently have residential programs in Nevada County and Sacramento County.
