Who We Serve
Reality House serves female adolescents between the ages of 14-21 who are ready to prepare to reintegrate into the community and become independent.
- To teach work ethics, volunteerism, and management skills
- To help residents clarify personal goals
- To provide personal resources for secondary education
- To provide a supportive home-like environment while young adults prepare for a successful life
Reality House opened on November 1, 2001, to serve girls stepping down from our residential programs into a more community-based environment in order to develop independent living skills that they can use when they leave.
As part of Twin Cedars, the Reality House is a member of the Council on Accreditation (COA) and the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children (MAAC).
Reality House consistently receives scores of ‘A’ from the Office of Provider Management in the areas of Safety, Well-Being, and Permanency.
