Every girl or child assigned female at birth who wishes to attend the program must meet these requirements: graduation from a residential treatment center, therapeutic wilderness program, therapeutic boarding school, or other similar treatment programs, has demonstrated readiness for this level of responsibility and freedom, is committed and stable relative to ongoing life and therapeutic goals, is and is committed to sobriety. If your child from Iowa meets these requirements, they can then undergo an admission interview and our professional team will assess if an independent living program is the best choice for your daughter. Our program is based on five core principles: healthy living, education, life skills, personal responsibility and social integration. Every girl or child assigned female at birth must decide, with the support of family and a professional team, goals within every principle. But our girls and assigned female at birth con decide even to get a job or go on with high school or college studies. Our independent living program can help make your child become a successful and happy adult, more than capable of coping with society and internal issues.
