A Place for Listening, Understanding and Healing
Being a teenager (or the parent of a teenager) comes with special challenges. Many parents have trouble communicating with their teens, which can lead to feelings of distrust or isolation. Sometimes these feelings boil over into damaging words, behavior and violence at home, which can escalate, doing irreparable harm to families.
Shelter House offers teens that are struggling a safe place to stay while things calm down at home. The Shelter House Program gives teens and families a chance to gain distance from conflict, begin mediation and develop a plan to improve the relationship that is based on the family’s strengths.
Shelter House accommodates up to 12 boys and 12 girls, and the average stay ranges from six to ten days.
