Residential Care & Emergency Shelter Care
Serving All Indiana Counties
The emphasis of the residential care program is on intensive therapeutic intervention; and maintaining and strengthening family contacts, as appropriate. Clients remain in care for an extended period of time to be determined by the referring agency, applicable agency staff, and family.
Length of stay is according to the client’s and families’ needs, the client, and families’ ability to make healthy changes, and an applicable aftercare plan. The final determination on the length of stay is decided by the court.

Emergency Shelter Care (ESC)
The focus of the emergency shelter care (ESC) program is to provide a safe placement for youth with immediate need; placement in this program occurs via request from probation or the Department of Child Services. Youth remain in care for a period of 20 days, unless the placing agency requests the YSB to apply for an emergency shelter care extension.
Due to the emergency nature of placements, calls are made through a referring agency (probation or DCS) and are received 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. YSB staff gathers information regarding the youth and reason for placement request; determination is made via this information to determine appropriateness for the program.
