We at Eckerd Youth Alternatives share the concern expressed by so many over the sudden closing of CEDU Schools, and the hardship this has created for parents whose children have been displaced and the CEDU staff who dedicated their lives and energy for the betterment of youth. Our thoughts are with all of you.

Eckerd Youth Alternatives, a mission-driven, nonprofit organization, was among the pioneers in helping at-risk and troubled teens through therapeutic residential programs. Since 1968, we have helped more than 63,000 youth find a better path in life.

For the families and children who have been displaced by the sudden closure of the CEDU Schools, we offer an alternative placements and special assistance. Our Admissions office will provide personal attention and expedited processing of any referral related to the CEDU closure. Further, we do not have application fees. For assistance, call our Director of Admissions, Francene Hazel, directly at 1-800-914-3937.

For former CEDU employees, we invite you to explore career opportunities among our staff of 1,400 employees as teachers, counselors or human service workers at one of our 40 program locations in eight states. For more information about current opportunities and to apply online, visit our web site at www.eckerd.org .

At Eckerd Youth Alternatives, our bottom line is helping kids. In this time of crisis for so many, if we can help, we stand firmly ready to offer assistance.
