The McAuley Nazareth Home for Boys is a licensed and accredited residential special education school and group home serving youth ages six (6) to eighteen (18) who have experienced emotional trauma and neglect. These youth present with unique needs that require special care and attention.

These include (but are not limited to) small group living, out-patient medical services, on-site nursing services, dental care, speech and occupational therapy, individual, family & group therapy, psychological testing, psychiatric treatment, social support services to family, pre-vocational & vocational counseling, and recreational activities on grounds and in the local community.
