In addition to large, three-story brick group homes, The Marsh Foundation’s expansive 1,400 acre campus features an administration building, a school, auditorium, a greenhouse, gymnasium, pond and garden among other things. The homes all feature recreation rooms and private bedrooms. In recent years, they’ve also been remodeled.
Three of the group homes are gender-specific and licensed to house up to 10 children, ages 7-17. One of these is dedicated to The Marsh’s program for male juvenile sex offenders. The homes are staffed 24-hours a day by highly trained family teachers who consistently provide behavioral treatment using the Teaching Family Model. The homes are multi-staff secure, including awake overnight staffing.
A fourth home has a program geared toward independent living and is licensed for six males, ages
15 and older. The less-restrictive environment provides a great option for step-down care within our network. After meeting specific treatment goals within the group homes, children may be able to step down to a foster home within The Marsh Foundation’s continuum of care. Or, they may be ready to return home with their family.
