Journey Home West is happy to announce that five of their residents have graduated high school this Spring and are going to be attending college in the Fall. Two of these students were awarded with significant scholarships. One was able to get the Horizon Scholarship, which will amount to $56,000 toward her tuition, while the other received the Dean's Scholarship and will total $68,000 of her expenses.
The Journey Home residents have worked extremely hard over the past few years and Journey Home West is obviously so proud of them! They will be wonderful assets to their universities and are going to go on to do many wonderful things in their lives.
About the Journey Home
Journey Home West was established in Layton, UT in 2008 after noticing there were limited options for our clients from Solstice RTC West needing a community-based step down option. Journey Home West serves females aged 16-21 and provides structure for students while they learn independent living skills. Much of the structure and support provided by our 24/7 staffed home is with managing electronic devices, managing free time and social life appropriately, and budgeting, shopping for groceries and cooking meals.
Clients enrolling at Journey Home have a previous therapeutic placement, where home was not an option afterward. They are provided with a therapist in the home to work on individual and family issues.
