At our home we focus on helping the girls learn independent living skills, personal responsibility, and provide counseling for their individual needs. We have a few special amenities at our home. The girls enjoy swimming in our pool often in the warm months. We have a beautiful 5 acres of land that has a pond in the back perfect for walks and activities. We have a salon for our girls to use which has been amazing when we have had youths that have chosen to attend Penta Career Center for Cosmetology.
A new favorite space of the youths is the craft room that was created for the girls to express themselves and have a creative outlet. The Farris Home has 7 bedrooms but licensed to accommodate up to 10 youths. We tend to try and keep it to 7 youths so each girl can have their own individual bedroom to feel comfortable in and have a safe space of their own.
The Farris Group Home Staff enjoys holidays and always makes sure the girls feel special and loved. We enjoy going on outings to Cedar Point, the Toledo Zoo, and we do a weekly Friday Night Out of dinner and shopping for those girls that have earned privileges.
