“BE STRONG ENOUGH TO STAND ALONE, SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN YOU NEED HELP, BRAVE ENOUGH TO ASK FOR IT”

Case Management

Sunrise House provides programming to increase access to life skills development, help youth with learning new skills and increase coping skills making them more resistant to crisis.

This program has several components:

  1. Involve community agencies so youth are aware of what is available for programs and supports – then be more comfortable accessing if and when needed
  2. Fun activities such as: Arts and crafts, Outdoor fun, Holiday celebrations
  3. Life skills such as: Cooking, Baking, Meal Planning, and Budgeting

Our goal is to build our youth up, provide them with tools and supports, and successfully prepare them for life beyond Sunrise House.
