Your Financial Resources

Adoption Assistance Program Funding (AAP)

Adopted children are often able to acquire Adoption Assistance Program funding from the state of California.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Eagles Rest Ranch is able to accept these funds and help your daughter receive high-quality treatment with no out of pocket cost to you!

Medicaid Insurance

Most residential treatment centers do not accept Medicaid insurance. We jump through hoop after hoop to ensure that families on Medicaid are able to afford our treatment. Again, no out of pocket cost to you!

Eligibility requirements vary state by state. Most of which involve a psychiatric evaluation of your daughter them to ensure your daughter is truly in need of treatment like ours.

Private Pay

If Adoption Assistance Program Funding or Medicaid Insurance aren't available for you, we always are able to accept those who are able to pay privately.

Some families doing private pay may find sources of funding through loans or grants via their local banks.

Adoption Assistance Program Funding (AAP)

Eagle's Rest Ranch works with mainly adopted children and their families. AAP may be available to you if your daughter was adopted through the state of California's adoption system; even if you do not reside in California.

Introducing our Sister Program:

Havenwood Academy

Havenwood Academy coexists with Zion Hills Academy. The young women at Havenwood attend the same school, go through the same program, and have the same experience as at Zion Hills.

The difference between these two programs is simply insurance. Those families that are on AAP are placed in the Zion Hills house and those on Medicaid are in the Havenwood house.
