Haynes Family of Programs



The Haynes Family of Programs provides specialized treatment and educational services to children with special needs relating to emotional development, autism, Asperger’s Disorder, learning disabilities, neglect and abandonment.

It was founded in October 1946 by LeRoy Haynes, a former chaplain at the Fred Nelles Youth Authority in Whittier, as a way to help many of the troubled boys he served through intervention and treatment in a home-like setting.

The group home facility has grown from its initial 10 residents to six cottages, each housing 12 children. Mental health treatment services are provided to every resident. The Haynes Education Center, a non-public school founded in 1989 as a companion to the group home facility, initially provided schooling to the children of what was formerly LeRoy Boys Home. It has grown to serve not only the children who live on campus but the community as a whole, accepting children (boys and girls) from 14 school districts throughout Southern California.

Credentialed teachers working in a highly structured environment address curriculum as well as learning disabilities including autism, emotional challenges and developmental disabilities. The agency serves more than 2,000 children and families annually through its programs — residential, Haynes Education Center and mental health services.
