The goal of aftercare is to help a young man or woman maintain a successful transition to returning home following a positive release from Arrowhead. Through aftercare contact, the former resident is assisted with family, peer, or personal problems for up to 90 days. This assistance comes from the resident’s case manager and is arranged prior to discharge.
Aftercare services, which are provided by Arrowhead at no extra cost to the placing agency, include:
- Maintaining close contact with resident for up to 90 days
- Counseling youth and family if problems arise
- Maintaining communications with referring agencies
- Supporting the youth by accompanying them at community activities
Arrowhead can also grant educational scholarships, from our Wormley Family Trust, to individuals who seek continued education or vocational training.
