Christian Acres Youth Center, Inc.


Christian Acres was established in December 1981 as an alternative to traditional juvenile placement.  The group home is located on approximately twenty acres of well manicured land in Tallulah, Louisiana.  The facility is comprised of seven residential homes.  Six of these homes house 12 youth each and one home houses 10 youth.  The facility has an administration building, control station and gymnasium.  The gymnasium houses seven self-contained classrooms, maintenance, storage, kitchen and dining room.  The facility operates under the corporate auspices of Christian Acres Youth Center, Inc.  It is designed to serve 106 male youth ages 12-17.

Christian Acres respects the resident’s positive potentials and his self-determining role in shaping the course of placement and the pace at which these potentials unfold.  At Christian Acres priority is always given to individual resident needs, and therefore, the program experience of a given resident may vary within the program structure.  The program is designed to be completed in six months however; the typical placement is from eight to twelve months.

Mission:  Changing the way the future looks, one family at a time.
