Journey Home East is designed as a 6-12 month step down transitional independent living program that offers therapeutic support, life skills development and refinement, and a template for personal growth and responsibility. Based on structure, support, and mentoring, young women emerge from the Journey Home East program emotionally and intellectually equipped to navigate young adult life.
Journey Home East provides key supportive interventions in a home-like setting. We include various types of interventions including group, individual, and family support. As a transitional independent living program, we also help our residents work on independent living skills, develop positive peer and community relationships, help them with academic success, and provide exciting recreational activities.
Journey Home East helps provide the opportunity for greater freedoms and responsibilities entailed in pursuing further education or having a job. Residents are being supported in this process by our skilled staff.
