PATHWAY TO HOPE

Pathway to Hope is inspired by a commitment to strengths-based treatment for youth who exhibit problematic and/or illegal sexual behaviors. This program is rooted in three core pillars: Family, Community and Purposeful Life.

A TREATMENT PROGRAM DESIGNED FOR YOUTH WITH PROBLEMATIC AND/OR ILLEGAL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR

Strong Advocates for Youth 

Youth who have exhibited problematic sexual behaviors are often subject to ostracism and judgement within their surrounding communities and relationships. In alignment with our organization’s mission and values, our staff are advocates for all youth served in the program, consistently working to uphold the dignity of the youth by advocating for compassionate, fair and just treatment.  

 
A Focus on a Positive Future 

Problematic sexual behaviors often negatively impact a youth’s self-identify and a belief in a positive future. Specific lesson topics are curated to building a safe, positive and healthy future, championing the youth to work toward and obtain a pro-social life. Each youth served receives an individualized prevention plan, with components that include identification of internal and external risk factors, coping strategies, protective factors and accountability planning. Relapse prevention is a way of thinking or looking ahead to identify supports and exit strategies that prevent a recurrence of problematic and/or illegal sexual behaviors.
