Core Principles

How We Help

Journey Home East is a transitional program for young women between the ages of 16-21. Our program was specifically designed to help those who need ongoing support after successfully completing an intensive treatment program such as a residential treatment center.  We offer this inviting home setting for any young adult who needs a “soft landing” from a residential treatment center or other types of treatment programs for young adults.

Journey Home East is on average a six month to twelve month transition program which is designed to assist residents in making a healthy transition from a highly structured treatment program environment into a more real world setting.  Our goal is to help our residents grow into mature, responsible, accountable, and successful young adults who can apply the lessons and principles that they have learned in practical, everyday life.

Five Core Principles of Life Coaching for Young Adults

At Journey Home we teach and reinforce Five Core Principles which we believe to be at the heart of what will help our young women live happy, productive lives.  These principles we believe to be critical for life coaching for young adults at our transitional living center.

  • Physical care and exercise – taking care of oneself physically and emotionally is some of the useful life coaching for young adults that occurs at Journey Home East.
  • Mental, emotional, and spiritual health – healthy bodies, healthy minds, this is essential for young adults to blossom into productive adults.

Education

Education

  • Skills, interests, and hobbies – rather than unproductive or unhealthy habits, we provide opportunities to develop and nurture new passions and skills.
  • High school or college academics – continuing on a course of learning can provide new opportunities for residents if this path is of interest to the resident.
  • Vocational / career skills – we encourage everyone at Journey Home East to develop specific skills that are associated with professional opportunities. Developing these skills through are critical aspects of life coaching for young adults.

  • Shopping – while fun, shopping excursions are also teachable moments to encourage sound financial planning.
  • Cooking – for themselves and for the community residents cook and clean.
  • Job searching and interviewing skills – part of being successful and productive means having a job and being successful in the search is vital for finding a job that is rewarding.
