At Journey Home, we believe that a well-rounded therapeutic approach leads to a solid foundation for positive growth and development. Our approach to therapy is based on decades of research conducted by members of our therapeutic team.
We are located in Utah, but we help teens from across the nation, including Pennsylvania.
Our approach is founded upon five core principles:
Our girls and assigned female at birth have also the possibility to go on with high school or college studies, or even get a job, they’re encouraged to be as independent as they can be.
Unlike other independent living programs which help teens from Pennsylvania, we do many fun activities in addition to a traditional residential model. Throughout their stay at Journey Home, teens can have fun with Fun Food Friday, snow sports in the winter, visiting museums, going to movies, exploring the local outdoors by hiking and biking, and many other local events and activities.

Choosing the best independent living program for your Pennsylvania child can be a very difficult challenge. Having mental and emotional issues can be proving for the subject and the family, so it’s important to establish if an independent living program is the most adequate treatment option for your daughter.
Journey Home, one of the leading independent living programs, it’s conceived to specifically suit teens who want to measure themselves with society and become independent healthy adults. Everything from our therapeutic approach to our recreational program is designed to help these teens to succeed.
Journey Home conceived five core principles that these girls and assigned female at birth need to develop and enhance in order to acquire the confidence to be independent adults. We offer a quiet and private residence where several activities and courses are taken by our girls and assigned female at birth every day.
Unlike many other services in this field, we focus on multiple areas and we determine which goal to choose for a specific area to meet the residents’ specific needs and desires, in fact every resident is not only a passive subject, but a proactive builder of their own therapeutic path. Even though we are located near Salt Lake City, Utah, we gladly help girls and assigned female at birth from all over the United States including Pennsylvania.
