Journey Home Young Adult Welcomes New Program Director
Journey Home Young Adult, a transitional living program for young adults ages 18-23, is excited to welcome Amanda Huaracha as their new Program Director.
Amanda joins the team with over 10 years’ experience in the mental health field industry. Amanda started her journey at an adolescent program that focused on family teaching and behavioral correction practices. She gained much of her knowledge from the family teachers she worked with as well as the experience of creating meaningful and intentional relationships with her students.
Amanda spent almost 4 years as a Residential Director at a program in Texas for young adult women, much like the students at Journey Home Young Adult. She directed day to day treatment with the students as well as encouraging relationship building and bonding, not only with the students, but with staff as well.
Amanda feels extremely grateful to be part of the Journey Home team. “I am so thrilled to be joining this team and cannot wait to help students prepare for the next steps in their lives. I hope to encourage students and staff in our work toward upholding Journey Home Young Adult as a supportive place for growth and learning,” Amanda said.
Amanda is originally from California, but grew up in Utah. She loves graphic novels, live music, art and tacos. She has two younger sisters who she is very close with and a Great Dane, Atticus, who is the love of her life.
