Welcome to LAUREL HOUSE Providing a Home for Teens in Crisis for 30 Years

Our Program


Teenage girls ages 12-17 years old who:

  • Have a history of running away
  • Have behavioral and/or educational struggles
  • Are experimenting with drugs and/or alcohol
  • Show signs of depression and/or erratic behavior
  • Need a temporary break from their families due to tense circumstances at home

Coming Soon!

We are excited to announce that Laurel House has recently purchased a home in Tustin to open a new home for at-risk, runaway, or homeless teenage boys. We are in the process of updating the Boys Home to California State Licensing standards and anticipate opening in the summer of 2019.

If you would like to make a donation for the Boys Home renovation project, please email info@laurelhouse.org for more information. Thank you in advance for your support!
