5343632_s - CopyDACF operates eight Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program facilities, as defined by the California Welfare and Institutions Code. We currently accept females and males aged 12-18, who have a history of delinquency, severe emotional disturbance, or who have been unsuccessful at a lower level of care. We acknowledge that all of the girls and boys in our care are predisposed towards delinquency, and are at high-risk for recidivism following discharge. Our high staff-to-resident ratio ensures that all of our clients are properly supervised, and have access to an adequate support system in times of crisis.
