The Mel Blount Youth Home of Pennsylvania is a multi-service treatment program for young males who are victims of child abuse and neglect. The Mel Blount Youth Home is situated on 300 acres of land located in Washington County. The Youth Home is surrounded by beautiful woods and fields, an outdoor equestrian center, walking trails, basketball court and fishing ponds. Our inter-disciplinary treatment program takes full advantage of community based agencies that provide children with an array of opportunities to experience success. Individual therapeutic techniques are used with the pre-adolescent such as play therapy activities, music therapy, reality therapy and anger management. All regular and special needs residents attend one of the McGuffey School District's elementary, middle of high schools, unless specified by their Individual Education Plan (IEP).
How Can You Help?
We at the Mel Blount Youth Home wish to extend our gratitude to everyone who continues to support us throughout the year. Each donation enables us to provide the special care and attention these young men so desperately need.
There are many ways in which individuals or companies are able to assist us in our mission, in addition to financial support. We welcome indiviudals who could utilize talents, resources and time in their areas of expertise (i.e. computer programming, wood working, managing finances, farming, gardening and educational programs). Another way would be to contribute basic items throughout the year such as:
