All Kinds of News for December 07, 2016
Journey Home West is located in Layton, Utah, where it has been open for four years and is a great place for young women ages 16-21, after completing a residential or wilderness program. Our young ladies come to us when home is not an option after treatment. While with us, they have the option to attend the local high school or to do college courses. We have a therapist, who will provide individual and family therapy to all the residents in the home. While here, they are able to earn laptops and cell phones with unlimited use.
Journey Home provides the structure and support, along with the freedom needed to feel like they are living a somewhat normal life. Our residents have the opportunity to shop for their own groceries, cook their own food, manage their time, and all the while have a supportive and loving staff to guide them along the way. Since Journey Home West is located in a small suburb of Salt Lake City, clients are able to go into the bigger city for activities and fun. They are also encouraged to have a dating life, but boys are not allowed on the property.
