How TreeHouse Works TreeHouse works because our programs are specifically designed to meet the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual needs of teens. From individual time with a staff member to small group time to large group activities, teens find a place they belong here.
SUPPORT GROUP During support group, all youth will ‘check-in’ by saying their name, rating how their week is going and naming at least three emotions they have felt over the past week. Support group provides a safe environment where youth can give and receive support surrounding important issues in their life. Participation is voluntary, but usually attendance at support group indicates a willingness to be actively involved in the discussion. Youth learn they are not alone in dealing with any issue. There is always someone who can relate to what is going on in another group member’s life.Teens also learn how to support someone else in need. They come to realize they are lovable, capable and worthwhile. TreeHouse support groups become a place where youth know they will always be listened to without being judged and that what they say matters to others.

GOING DEEPER Going Deeper was designed to meet the developing spiritual and personal skills youth need to be successful in life. Games, skits, lyrics, movie clips and teaching are all part of the fun of Thursday nights. Staff members teach practical life skills teens must develop in order to grow into healthy young adults.

ONE-TO-ONE MENTORING One-to-Ones are meetings between a TreeHouse staff member and a youth. These meetings usually occur after school and allow the staff and youth to build a relationship that would not be possible in a group setting. Youth tend to be more comfortable sharing some issues when they have the individual attention of a TreeHouse staff member. One-to-Ones often occur at a fast food restaurant, a sporting event, a park or any place the youth and staff agree upon. For many of our teens, this is one of the best parts of our program because they have a safe, caring adult all to themselves.
