Basic Care provides a long-term and sometimes permanent placement for children as young as age five. Children often stay at the Home until they graduate from high school; after which, the Home provides every graduate an opportunity to go to college or to obtain specialized training in a particular career field.
The Home’s vision statement limits the scope of the admission requirements to the following criteria.
At least five years old
Normal to above normal aptitudes
No deep-seated emotional or drug-related issues
Can thrive well in a group of children living under set behavioral expectations
Step one: Initial inquiry by phone for qualification and available opening
Step two: Personal interview with child and legal guardian
Step three: Pre-placement weekend visit
Step five: 90-day placement
Step six: Full admission
To initiate possible placement, please contact our Child Care Office.
