HomeSafe understands that time is of the essence when it comes to your residential placement needs.
To help streamline the process and ensure timely and high-quality service, HomeSafe has a dedicated email address (Referrals@HelpHomeSafe.org) for referrals to our Residential Group Care programs – Specialized Therapeutic Group Care (STGC) and Enhanced Behavioral Overlay Services (BHOS).
Our Referral Coordinator will work closely with you to expedite the process, all while ensuring full attention is given to the individualized needs of each youth.
