Journey Home Creates Lasting Success For Arkansas Young Women

Journey Home is one of the most professional transitional living programs from Arkansas, we think that developing well-rounded skills is the best solution to achieve a long-lasting basis upon building success in our life. With more than a decade of experience in the field, our team established these five core principles as the most important areas to develop for becoming a successful and capable adult.

These principles are:

  • Healthy Living: It’s important to keep ourselves healthy, not only in our body, but also in mind and relationships. The objectives of this principle are to develop and take care of the body, learn to manage emotions and feelings and learn how to have good and satisfying relationships. Picture4
  • Education: In order to be a successful adult in a modern society having a job is important, and education can lead to more career opportunities. We teach how to develop hobbies and interests, and some career, high school or college skills.
  • Life Skills: Managing day-to-day problems is also very important for practical reasons and also to build self-esteem. We teach our girls financial (budgeting, balancing check book, saving), daily living (chores cleaning, hygiene, etc), shopping, cooking, organizational, time management and job searching skills.
  • Personal Responsibility: One of the most relevant principle is taking responsibility, gaining a sense of agency and commitment to ourselves and our desires, in order to do that our young women are trained to task completion, planning, time management and keeping commitments.
  • Social Integration: Interacting with others is of course fundamental to be in any society, therefore we teach our girls how to have positive recreational activities, do community service, dating and healthy socialization.

We differ from other transitional living programs in the fact that our program from Arkansas is intended to involve parents and the resident in planning goals and treatment, this way we build up more sense of agency in our girls.

Choosing a top transitional living program for young women from Arkansas

After an intense therapeutic wilderness setting in Arkansas, close-knit and away from mainstream society, going back to normal can be difficult, and sometimes a transitional space is required to consolidate new skills and our new self. Journey Home fits this type of demand and is one of the leading transitional living programs from Arkansas.

Journey Home is a transitional living program intended for young women between the ages of 16 and 21, who have already had a successful experience in a therapeutic wilderness setting, and now want to improve their emotional, practical and social skills in order to be and feel more independent and successful. Picture8

Although not located in Arkansas, Journey Home helps young women from all over the country, and can continue the process started at a wilderness therapy center.

Journey Home’s therapeutic approach focuses on choosing, with the help of parents and a specialized professional team, goals to accomplish in five core principles:

  • Healthy living
  • Education
  • Life Skills
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Social Integration

They are intended to be foundations for a better and more successful future.

What makes Journey Home one of the best transitional living programs is that we understand that there is a conflict between these young women’s needs, like time to fully assimilate the new skills and lessons, and the pressing demands of society that is always pushing to go on and never stop. That’s why our main mission is to provide a transitional space that allows for peace and time to grow as well as giving residents the opportunity to develop socially useful skills.
