About Us

For over 125 years, Hoyleton has been creating a better world for the children and families we serve


Hoyleton Youth & Family Services is one of only 14 CARE certified agencies in the United States, and the only one serving youth in the Midwest. CARE certification is granted to social services agencies, by Cornell University, who meet the Residential Child Care Project's Highest Standards for Implementation of the Child and Residential Experiences (CARE) Program Model. CARE is a trauma-informed practice model based on six core principles that create successful outcomes for children and families. The aim of CARE is to bring our current practice closer to well-researched best practices with children and families impacted by trauma. The CARE model is recognized as our agency compass, it guides our interactions with youth, families and staff as well as our policies, procedures and decision making.

Why Work For Us?: 

A career at Hoyleton is more than a job, it is a calling to affect real change for underserved members of our community. It is our mission to enable all people young and old alike to realize the wholeness of life that God intends.

A place where you can make a positive impact in someone's life.

Every staff member at Hoyleton works cohesively to do what is in the best interest of the children in our care. We recognize each child, family and situation is different so we adhere to a comprehensive principle-based care model that provides a framework to keep relationships at the center and guide everything we do.

A place to feel safe and supported sharing your beliefs and values.

Hoyleton is an all-inclusive social-services agency. We are committed to an organizational culture that honors and values the dignity of all life and lived experiences.
