The youth home is designed to be a home for Indian children who, due to no fault of their own, have no other healthy living environment to live in. The children served are considered “at risk”. This means if nothing is done differently, the child may not be able to ward off the potential social ills that plague the reservations. We believe a child should live in a safe and secure home and be able to thrive. A child has the option of living in the home as long as they choose, at no cost to them. While at Shiloh home, a child has the opportunity to go to class every day, get on grade level, and participate in the variety of extracurricular activities available. Along with the academic supports available to them, they also have the cultural and spiritual components integrated into everyday living. Ideally, a child should remain with their parent; however there are times that this is not feasible. Untimely deaths or the presence of drugs and alcohol in the home can make an unstable living environment. St. Labre offers a licensed home to these children for as long as they need. Assistance is given to families who want to make a change. We are willing to do what we can to help them through this process.
