We offer three different types of programs: a Six to Nine Month Program, a 90 Day Fast Track Program, and a Supervised Independent Living Program.
Six to Nine Month Program
Pathway of Hope is a home away from home, a new beginning, where teenage girls can go for help. We provide services for:
- Physical and Emotional Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Troubled Family Relationships
- Sexual Offenses
- Behavior Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Teen Pregnancy
- Substance Abuse
- Abandonment Issues
- Eating Disorders
We teach simple life skills, relationship building, drug-free living, leadership skills, public speaking, storytelling and self-esteem building. It is our hope that with time the girls can grow into responsible, caring and drug-free young adults with positive family and friend relationships.
Every girl’s story and situation is different. Therefore her counseling will be tailored specifically for her and her family’s needs. We’ll help sort out all the things in her life that have brought her to this point. With our excellent, caring, round-the-clock staff, she will gain new perspective on her life and will learn to problem solve, help others, tell her story and become a productive member of society.
90 Day Fast Track Program
We offer a “Fast Track” ninety day treatment program that is broken up into three stages we call “Tracks”. Each track is a com
prehensive analysis of all the things relating to the girl’s situation. She is invited to identify things like…
Track 1: “Why am I here? What are the situations that lead me to Pathway of Hope?”
Track 2: “What are the root issues that lead to my negative behaviors?”
Track 3: “What progress have I made and what is my plan for success when I return home?”
She’ll also study three books, ‘The Five Languages of Apology’, ‘The Languages of Emotions’ & ‘The Six Pillars of Self Esteem’. She’ll also be required to lead small group sessions based on what she’s learned.
Supervised Independent Living
Pathway of Hope will assist in finding placement in our supervised Independent Living program when return to family or relatives is not possible. This program will arrange financing, housing and supervision for clients who need support in order to become productive members of the community.
Our Independent Living program is a family living style program offered to girls who are 16-19 and do not have a strong family support system to which they can return.
Pathway of Hope’s purpose is to help these girls become independent and positive contributors to society through counseling, education, life skills, spiritual guidance, training, and work. We help provide jobs and job training so each resident will eventually have a better chance of becoming a productive adult.
The Independent Living program is open to wards of the court seeking out of home residential placement in an open setting. However, chronic runaways, highly aggressive individuals, those that are severely mentally limited or those that have a severe mental disorder will not fit in well with the group process or benefit from the program. Residents must be physically able to perform all required duties independently and emotionally stable to handle the day-to-day responsibilities required.
