Transitional Living Program

Journey Home is a transitional living program for teens and young women ages 16-21. Our program is designed to help residents transitioning from a wilderness or residential therapy setting who believe that going straight home is not the best idea for them.

The young women interested in attending our program may feel they need: JHRTC1

  • Continued structure: Sometimes young women transitioning from a wilderness or residential treatment environment believe that they need a more structured environment than their home environment can offer. When residents first arrive at Journey Home, we provide the structure they need to begin their transition back into the “real world”. As residents progress through the program, they are given more and more independence with the intention of boosting confidence and self-efficacy.
  • Independent Living Skills: When preparing to transition out of a therapeutic environment, many young women are concerned that they don’t have the skills necessary to thrive as independent young adults. At Journey Home, we incorporate what we call “Core Principles” into our programming. These core principles provide residents with the skills necessary to increase productivity and health.

For more information about the ways in which Journey Home can help you or your daughter continue striving towards success , please call 813-924-4347.

Learning Important Life Skills

At Journey Home, we help instill what we call “Core Principles” into the lives of students. During their time at Journey Home, we focus on five Core Principles. Residents establish goals based on these core principles, supported by Journey Home staff and their parents. The completion of these goals contributes to the progress of residents through our program. These five core principles are:

  • Education: Residents pursue their interests, hobbies, and skills by getting involved in internships and classes. Many of our residents continue their education by attending a local high school and/or community college. Another aspect of this core principle is the development of transferable job skills which can help young women continue their path towards success in the future.
  • Personal Responsibility: At Journey Home, residents learn about time management, being accountable for personal punctuality, and completing tasks on schedule.
  • Life Skills: We work closely with residents to help them develop important life skills such as budgeting and saving money, cooking, shopping, looking for a job, and daily living.
  • Social Integration: Getting residents involved in community service and healthy socialization helps improve social skills and helps girls feel like productive members of the community.
  • Healthy Living: Maintaining physical health and understanding how to develop healthy relationships and social interactions.
