In FY14, 100% of the youth discharged from our program moved to a family setting: two returned to their parents, one moved into an uncle’s home, and four moved into foster family homes
The average length of stay for these children was 18.5 Months-significantly below the state average
Historically, Guardian Angel Home has been able to provide “Treatment Opportunity Days” (TODR) at higher percentages than benchmarks established by DCFS. This means the children in care are receiving the help they need rather than on run, in jail, in mental health units, or otherwise not participating in the program. For Gill Hall we recently achieved a TODR rate of 100%, which is 2% above the established DCFS benchmark. Edward Hall achieved a rate of 99.6% which is 3.4% higher than the benchmark.
