Beacon House, a program of Concerned Citizens for Our Youth, Inc. (CCfOY),  is a facility licensed by the State of Alabama Department of Human Resources (SDHR) to provide Moderate Residential Services to female children aged 12-17.

Moderate Residential Services are defined by SDHR as being provided in a group care setting and include room, board, and an array of interventions and supports. Supports are based in a positive discipline approach and are individualized for each child and her needs. Residents are guided in learning to make positive decisions.  Various rules, consequences, and disciplinary guidelines assist residents in learning how to take responsibility for choices and behaviors.  Privileges are used to promote a healthy self-concept while developing appropriate decision-making skills.

Length of stay varies based on placement needs as well as progression and behavior in the program.  Stay requirements will be designated in each resident’s Individualized Service Plan (ISP).  These requirements may be amended based on the resident’s placement needs and progression and behavior in the program.

Our Mission: Promote healing, knowledge, and stability by empowering teenage girls needing a second chance.

Our Vision: Inspire healthy choices, growth, and opportunity for adolescents to ensure success in life.
