about us

The Fred and Clara Eckert Foundation for Children is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that does business as Eckert Youth Homes. Located in Williston, Eckert Youth Homes is a residential childĀ­care facility. We provide a safe, caring home and counseling services to boys and girls, ages 12-18, who are abused, neglected, delinquent, addicted or otherwise at risk. Our mission is to provide quality treatment services which encourage the spiritual, educational, behavioral, emotional, and physical development of children, youth, and their families. Licensed by the North Dakota Department of Human Services, Eckert Youth Homes offers individual and group counseling, educational services, independent living skills instruction, and spiritual life programming in a home environment. We partner with area schools, agencies and medical providers to offer a full range of care and services. Our staff teaches struggling youth how to build relationships, solve problems, manage anger, deal with peer pressure, abide by society's rules and laws, understand the consequences of their decisions, and develop good work habits. We have a family-based philosophy that encourages family member involvement in the programming of the children and youth who are placed with us.
