Rebound Transitional Living Program

Rebound is a 24-hour, community-based transitional living facility that works with young men ages 17.5 – 21 on employment skills, educational completion, money management, and other life skills needed to become successful adults in the community. Counselors and peers reinforce learned acceptable behaviors while helping clients recognize and deal with unacceptable behaviors. Rebound participants develop their own individual transitional living plans with the goal of achieving independence by age 21. 

The Rebound Environment

Rebound staff work to create a supportive, home-like environment while teaching the values of dignity, respect for self and others, and resiliency. Focusing on relationship development, staff members become trusted adults that the youth can come to for advice and comfort. Rebound provides a safe place where young men are reminded of their strengths, provided educational and vocational opportunities, and are encouraged to make better decisions for their futures.
