PNW Helping Hands is a sub-contractor for a local organization, providing care and support to Unaccompanied Refugee Minors. Our philosophy focuses on providing the tools and mentoring to the youth so that they can be successful in the community. These unique programs operate 24 hours a day.
‘Moving Out and Making It’ Curriculum
Each youth is involved in the co-development of their Independent Living Skills Program. This exceptional curriculum is comprised of a suite of comprehensive assignments, assessments, learning plans and resources that can be utilized at their own pace.
The plan addresses the following:
Career Planning and Work Life
Communication and Social Relationships
Daily Living and Home Life Skills
Personal Money Management
Overall, Refugee Residential Treatment Coaches at these locations are available 24/7 to assist with anything from homework, coaching throughout independent skills learning or a job search and acquisition process, and most importantly to simply be there for them.
While out in the community, the youth are striving to adapt to their surroundings by getting to know the area and the language, in hopes of becoming more independent. Many play on local sports teams, attend local fitness centers and other various programs to further thier successful development.
