The mission of Oak Grove…
to rebuild the lives of at-risk children and their families through educating, healing, restoring relationships, building character and instilling hope

Residential Treatment Center and Nonpublic Schools

Oak Grove is a nonprofit 24-hour residential, educational, and therapeutic treatment center that serves 76 children who live on campus as well as 90 – 100 day students who attend our nonpublic school. Our main campus and residential center is located in Murrieta, while our second campus, Oak Grove at the Ranch, is located in Perris and serves an additional 50 students. Children are admitted to our programs with a variety of psychological, social, emotional, behavioral, medical and neurological problems along with concurrent behavioral difficulties, school problems, family dysfunction and alcohol or substance abuse. Many of the children have suffered physical and/ or sexual abuse, or other traumas or have experienced many other severe social, emotional or behavioral challenges.

We are licensed by the California Department of Social Services as a level 12 group home and have the additional distinction of being accredited by the Joint Commission, as well as both of our nonpublic school campuses holding full 6-year accreditations from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Oak Grove works with children and adolescents whose needs and problems can be quite complex. One of our greatest assets lies in the sophistication and experience level of a team of clinicians comprised of psychiatrists and licensed independent practitioners (MFT, LCSW, Psy. D), as well as our nursing staff, behavior intervention specialists led by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, fully credentialed special education teachers, and milieu and activities staff that together make up the Treatment Team.
