Basic Needs: Immediate health and safety is of paramount importance. Clothes that fit properly, food, shelter, private bathrooms, and a safe place to sleep

INTENSIVE CASE MANAGEMENT. Girls are paired with staff with an emphasis on their relational development – their connection with the staff member builds simultaneously while the services are provided. She needs 24/7 access to her advocate/case manager. Girls are supported through the complexity of their life situations by case managers. Legal services, medical services, pregnancy & child care services, etc.

? INDIVIDUAL SERVICE PLANS. Goal – build self-worth, self-respect, and self-efficacy.

?MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING/TREATMENT. Trauma-informed ongoing mental health services, with a variety of specific treatments receiving particular emphasis; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) have been recommended by law enforcement.

Aftercare Shelters need to tailor their program to ensure trauma-informed care. There will also be a need for trained staff to provide crisis management around the clock.
