Our Programs

Rancho San Antonio offers a range of services designed to promote hope and healing.

Short Term Residential Therapeutic Program

Rancho has two Short Term Residential Therapeutic Programs (STRTP) that are trauma informed and serve court referred male youth 13-18 years of age as well as non-dependent minors.

The programs are designed to be intensive and to assist youth in addressing life patterns that resulted in placement outside of their homes.

Substance Use Services

Rancho has a contract with the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Substance Abuse Prevention and Control (SAPC) as an Outpatient/Intensive Outpatient SUD Treatment Program.

This program also offers prevention and early intervention as well as Recovery Services for youth ages 12-20. Our program is designed as a life recovery model that uses best practice principles of treatment such as assessment, relapse prevention, trauma informed treatment and psychoeducation.

Creative Healing Arts Program

The Creative Healing Arts Program is part of Rancho’s diverse experiential programming. The motto of Creative Healing Arts is “Heal And Be Heard.” Services are developed through collaboration between staff and youth.

The music studio is used to promote creative expression, pro-social emotional release, encouragement of skill development, through a solution focused and trauma informed approach.

Office of Refugee Resettlement

Rancho’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) program, also known as “Hope’s House” (or in Spanish, “Casa De Esperanza”),  is licensed and funded for a total bed capacity of 32 male unaccompanied children (UC), ages 13-17, who enter the United States without immigration status and without a parent or legal guardian who can provide for their immediate physical and mental well-being.

Trauma Informed Services and Training

Rancho has trained and integrated the trauma-informed framework model of Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) into its treatment programs and workplace.

We invest in clinical and other professional training for staff at all levels, including direct care, clinical services, substance use treatment, administrative, and business development, in addition to contract agreements with county, state, and federal regulatory bodies.

Youth Diversion Program

Rancho’s Youth Diversion Program engages and supports youth who are at risk of offending or entering the formal youth justice system.

Each youth is assessed utilizing a strengths-based approach to identify areas of strength, interest and need to provide linkages to appropriate community resources to meet their unique needs.

Transitional Age Youth Apartments

Rancho offers Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) 18-23 years old  males that are facing housing insecurity an opportunity to build a solid base for the future.

Participants are encouraged to establish financial security and pursuit of educational goals. There is a mock rent system in place to teach residents the responsibility of paying bills on time and acts as a savings account. The residents receive all this money back upon moving out on their own.


Rancho San Antonio has been selected as a Complex Trauma Training Consortium (CTTC) center that offers complex trauma training in the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan and Southern California areas. The Complex Trauma Training Consortium (CTTC) is a national trainer-training and workforce development initiative that aims to establish long-term expertise in complex trauma understanding, assessment, and treatment in each of the 50 United States, the five territories, the District of Columbia, and the four largest US metropolitan areas.
