The Children’s Home of Stockton (CHS) provides a home away from home for those youth who need it most, as its mission is to give at-risk youth an opportunity for a productive life through treatment and education in a safe, nurturing environment. CHS is one of the largest social service organizations in Stockton. They are Medi-Cal certified as a Specialty Mental Health Provider and offer Transition Aftercare services and substance abuse prevention education. CHS has served approximately 150 at-risk youth ages 12 to 18 each year for over 139 years. As the highest level of care for foster youth, they provide intensive therapeutic services so each student can enhance their quality of life and have a place where they feel safe, supported, and happy. The goal is to offer needed support so every child has the chance to be successful and thrive as a productive member of the community.

CHS offers Specialty Mental Health Services in a 34-bed Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Program (STRTP). In addition, it provides on-campus Vision classes operated by the San Joaquin Office of Education.

CHS opened Catalyst, a 12-bed Transitional Housing Program for TAY ages 18-24. It provides coordinated robust services that include linkages for mental health counseling, life skills, educational assistance, and career assistance, and housing and transportation assistance.

CHS is a non-profit organization. For more information, to get involved, or to tour the campus please contact at (209) 466-0853.
