The goal of this program is to change the mind sets and behavior patterns of the youth so that they will be able to function appropriately in society and will return to the community as healthy, productive citizens.

The length of placement is determined by the specific needs of the youth. The program provides daily opportunities for emotional, social, educational, and physical growth. This not only minimizes the likelihood of continued negative behavior, but also prepares the youth for responsible social living. Upon arrival, each youth is familiarized with the program philosophy and rules. Individual Service Plans (ISP) are created to enable the staff to deal more effectively with each youth. The process is completed within the youth’s first month of placement and results are forwarded to the youth’s agency worker.After the initial orientation period, the client is assigned to a beginning phase, where privileges must be earned by changes in behavior and attitude.Each youth is assigned a case manager, and one-on-one youth worker.
