The Program Goals
Providing support and supervision to young men in foster care who display a
history of behavioral difficulties including, but not limited to aggressive and assaultive
Our services include the supervision of youth by well-trained staff who are
dedicated to the success of each client and able to perform crisis intervention in a calm,
professional manner. Within these services, weekly individual and group counseling as
well as family counseling when needed, are provided. In addition, our services include
recreational skill building, intensive educational support and other individualized
services and support as needed.
Our program utilized the Sanctuary Model curriculum which is evidence based
and is dedicated to the principles of safety, increasing emotional awareness, addressing
loss, and formulating a healthy future.
Participating youth are young men ages 13-17 from the Portland Metro area that
are in custody of the Oregon State Department of Human Services. These youth come
to us at a time in their lives when the traditional foster home setting has not been a
sufficient means of supervision and care due to various reasons. While at The Inn, the
youth engage in behavioral rehabilitative services (BRS) such as group skill building,
recreational, skill building, academic skill building, individual skill building and individual
and group counceling.
