Journey Home East specializes in serving young women ages 16-21 who have successfully completed a residential treatment program, therapeutic boarding school, or wilderness therapy program and have demonstrated significant progress indicating their readiness for a life-skills based transitional living program. However, it is recognized that a transition period is necessary to support and provide these young women with the best chance of ongoing success. Journey Home east offers a transitional living center where young women can continue their success and strengths gained during treatment, while preparing themselves for returning back to home. Our transitional living center provides a more real-world, home-like setting than treatments programs but also offers a structure for residents to personalize based on their own needs and interests.

Part of the value in both school and holding down a local job is to reinforce the important life skills of time management, accountability, and achievement.
