Journey Home Young Adult Celebrates Program’s 2 Year Anniversary
Journey Home Young Adult, a step-down transition program for young adult females ages 18-23, is celebrating 2 years in operation this month. The program is proud to have served as a supportive space and launching pad for young adults stepping down from residential treatment centers or wilderness treatment settings and into adulthood.
The mission of Journey Home Young Adult is to offer a therapeutic community for those who need ongoing support after a prior, more intensive treatment stay. Clients work on developing independence while making the transition into healthy young adulthood. Clients continue to work on their emotional, physical, and mental health while gaining independent living skills.
Clients who have successfully completed the program over the past 2 years have gone on to a variety of young adult environments. After completing their stay, many of them are now independently living in their own apartments or with roommates, starting college locally in Utah, returning home and beginning their education at colleges in their area, or starting their career track.
Clients that stay in the area often stay in touch with the program and continue those relationships they’ve built during their stay. Clinicians, mentors, and other program staff enjoy when previous students reconnect and continue to offer them the support and community they need.
“We have had clients come back to visit and stay over for dinner,” said Folola Finau, Program Director at Journey Home Young Adult. “We had clients this past year who were unable to visit home due to COVID who spent the holiday with us. We understand that it is hard to start over in a new area far from family so our hope is though it is scary when they leave to start the next step of their journey, they still have a community that is rooting for them.”
Journey Home Young Adult is proud of all the accomplishments their clients have completed over the past 2 years and looks forward to helping more young people on their journey to self-fulfillment and healthy independent living.
