Residential Services

Hoyleton’s Residential Services program includes three locations that provide safe, secure environments where young people can begin their journey toward independence.

Hoyleton Children’s Home is a direct descendant of the original location established in 1895. This residential treatment facility in Hoyleton, Il., provides a caring environment for children ages nine through 21 as they address developmental disabilities, severe emotional problems, or profound behavioral issues. Therapy is focused on helping children positively change their behavior, achieve educational goals, and learn to live productive lives in the community.

The Transitional Living Program in Belleville, Ill., provides group care in a community-based setting to eight developmentally disabled males who are 17-20 years old. The program provides these young men with skills that will help them increase their independence as they transition to adulthood.
