After the death of his two sisters in a house fire and his father's arrest for arson, 19-year-old Ty Schmeling suddenly finds himself homeless and broke, unable to go to college as he'd planned. To make ends meet, he takes a job at Egret Ranch, a residential treatment facility for emotionally disturbed children in rural Mendocino County, California. The truth is much darker. The Ranch's director is a manipulative psychiatrist with personality disorders of his own. Patients and staff live in a highly sexualized environment fueled by binge drinking and recreational drug use. While Ty struggles with his own sexual identity and experimentation, he witnesses the abuse and violence endemic to the institution-and then finds himself the target of a vicious assault. Suspenseful and raw, Children's Home Inc, tells the realistic story of how Ty confronts the challenges of working an environment where the adults are as sick as the children they are supposed to be helping.
