Over the past four decades, Eggleston has responded to the growing needs of childhood trauma, mental illness, emotional problems, substance abuse, crime, and domestic violence. The agency has grown to eight treatment homes and has expanded services to include foster care and adoption, mental health and substance abuse and education. Eggleston serves numerous children and youth annually throughout Los Angeles County. Eggleston is committed to upholding its mission, vision and core values which will guide the agency through the tough times, serve as a beacon into the future and reflect the culture of the organization. Much has been achieved over the past years, and the agency will continue to strive to fulfill its mission with maximum efficiency and impact.
The mission of Eggleston Youth Centers, Inc. is to be the bridge toward healing, hope and resiliency by providing patient-centered and integrative services to our population served.
Eggleston’s vision is to serve as an exemplar for providing nurturing, holistic, compassionate, evidenced-based therapeutic treatment programs to ensure that every person served has the tools to lead sustainable and meaningful lives. Our vision is driven by a cadre of high quality treatment teams dedicated to serving children, adolescents, young adults and families who have been the victims of abuse, neglect, or are experiencing behavioral health or substance use issues.
Eggleston’s mission and vision are further defined by a set of core values that embrace the organization and serve as guiding principles for how we manage our work and fulfill our goals. The shared commitment to upholding and honoring these core values is steadfast and supports Eggleston’s philosophy of making children and families our first priority. Our success is determined by actual measurable outcomes of services provided.
Caring and Integrative Services means we treat the whole person and their families – emotionally, physically and practically.
