Sacramento Foster Care

Agency Mission Statement:
Paradise Oaks Youth Services provides 24-hour residential care for adolescent males who are diagnosed as severely emotionally disturbed (SED).  We will provide the following:

* A safe, caring & highly structured environment.

* An individually designed therapeutic treatment plan

* An individually designed academic and vocational educational instruction through our non-public Valley Oak Academy School

* Foster Family Services for Northern California

Safety, Supervision and Structure:
Paradise Oaks Youth Services and Valley Oak Academy’s main objectives are to provide a safe, supervised and structured residential setting for young people between the ages of 11 and 17, who have been diagnosed as Severely Emotionally Disturbed.  In addition to residential care, we provide social, psychiatric, educational and vocational services. The ultimate goal of these activities is to encourage each client to develop abilities that will allow him to gain a sense of self-worth, increased independence and practical living skills.

Residential Program:
Paradise Oaks operates 6 facilities in the Sacramento area each licensed for 6 beds. Our 36 male residents are supervised 24-hours a day with trained and educated staff. Our state rate classification level (RCL) is 12.

We utilize a behavioral point and level system to determine the resident’s degree of trust and privileges. Interactive communication between the resident and counselors is emphasized. Our program promotes vocational opportunities and living skills to educate the resident and maintain involvement in the program. As the resident participates in the program and his behavior is appropriate and safe, he is then  rewarded with praise, activities and privileges. Above all, our level system is centered on safety, supervision, and structure.
