Renaissance Life Center
While residing in the Renaissance Life Center, each youth will undergo a comprehensive, culturally relevant intake assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to develop a structured plan for overcoming obstacles that prevent access to a productive and safe educational, social, and family environment. Youth are given the resources and tools to overcome at-risk behaviors and stabilize transient behavior so that they can participate in a permanent and stable home environment. This plan may include reunifying the youth with parent or legal guardian and/or getting the youth into another safe living situation and off the streets. After assessment is complete, each youth will have an individualized plan to include the following Renaissance Life Center Services:
- Case Management, Advocacy, and Referral Services
- Multidisciplinary Advocacy Meetings - Family/legal guardian(s), teachers, law enforcement, community leaders, DSHS, mental health providers, chemical dependency specialist, etc.
- Educational Enrichment Programming - Continuing/advancing education and allowing opportunities for credit retrieval
- Family Services - Reconciliation, parenting, and conflict resolution
- Therapeutic Day and Evening Programs - Individual, group and family therapy, anger management, etc.
- Enrichment and Social Activities - Mentoring and leadership, cultural arts, CLEVER technology innovations, the Renaissance Arts Program, etc.
- Life skills - basic education, financial literacy, nutrition/meal preparation, effective communication skills, healthcare, access to community service, transportation and housing options, employment, etc.
