The Prairie Lakes Youth Programs are greatly concerned for the needs of all children in society and their need for proper care. We believe children need a continuum of care offered to them. We provide a service not available through traditional foster care or institutional care. We have a unique opportunity to provide services to children in need of different aspects of treatment from both resources. We provide adult guidance and professional services to children placed out of the home and yet keep the child involved in the community. Our facility is community based and our program is community oriented. We have tremendous flexibility in providing care to children with varying needs. The PLYP Group Homes work cooperatively with the child, their family, the placing agency and other professionals to develop an individual program plan, discharge plan and aftercare plan based on the placement critical goals.
The PLYP Girls Group Home, formerly known as The Kandiyohi County Girls Group Home, has over 120 years of combined experience. Employees must be mature individuals with education and/or work experience pertinent to the position they hold and must be at least 21 years of age.
