About Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services
As one of the oldest and largest nationally accredited nonprofit agencies of its kind in the area, Optimist works with more than 500 at-risk youth and their families every day, providing comprehensive mental health, residential care, education services, and foster family services. All young people placed in our facilities and within foster families are wards of the juvenile court and are referred by the Department of Probation and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services.
Optimist’s residential facilities accommodate 97 probationers ages 12-18 on the main campus and 24 students in four community group homes. Services include education through a special needs school and a charter school, outdoor sports and recreational activities, intensive expressive and group counseling therapies, substance abuse programs, vocational and life skills training, and support. We also offer a range of outreach mental health services and group sessions to the larger community. We are also a fully licensed foster care and adoption agency, matching abused and neglected children with certified foster or adoptive parents.
