Homestead Life Skills Group Home Phone: 519-524-6360 Homestead Life Skills Group Home began as Homestead Group Home in 1981, and was the foundation of Betamarsh Inc. The program changed in 2001 to address the need for a program more focused on life skills and treatment for adolescents. It is considered a stepping-stone for those participants who will continue on to the After Saratoga Program, or as an alternative for those who will be discharged at the age of 18.
