Port Group Homes

Port provides residential programming to youth who are in need of a safe, structured, caring and respectful environment and who will benefit from 24 hours of supervised living, independent living skills and social skill building.

Port’s program encourages youth to set individual behavior goals that are outlined in their individual treatment plans. The length of treatment will vary depending on the individual youth, their goals and input from the families and referring agencies.

Through an assortment of experiences including individual and group counseling, youth can begin to heal and take responsibility for their own lives. Schooling and recreation are also a part of the Port program. Port’s goal is for youth to show success in their program by showing increased progress on their targeted goals as outlined in their individual treatment plan. This progress is measured daily on their individual daily behavior report. Any service identified by the screening as needed by a youth and not provided directly by Port will be provided by an outside community partner.

Upon admittance, youth are assigned a primary counselor who will read all available history on the youth, look at the assessments and meet with the youth to develop an individual treatment plan. The treatment plan is updated monthly and as needed and will be shared with the referral agency and family.
