About Pineview Homes

Pineview Homes is a private, non-profit, state-licensed child caring institution. It operates a structured residential care program in Evart, Michigan for boys ages 8 — 17. For more information about our specific services, click here.

Pineview accepts children that are: Delinquent, Neglect/Abuse Status, IV-E, Non-Secure. Because of the open campus and informal atmosphere at Pineview, we do not favor the admission of the chronic runaway child or the highly aggressive child. Although we are not equipped to service the severely mentally limited, boys with borderline diagnosis seem to relate to the program and benefit from it.

Pineview’s treatment is structured as a six to nine month program, but the length of treatment varies with each youth, depending on areas of need, level of motivation, family involvement and the referring agency's wishes.

Family counseling, once per month, coincides with an off-grounds visit. In addition to this, home visits are scheduled approximately every four to six weeks and last up to 5 nights. We provide transportation for these visits and use them as preparation for reunification.

We contract with the Department of Human Services as well as accept clients from Probate Court, adoption agencies, and private referrals.
