Our intention is to provide a haven within the real world where young women and men can grow. Our Shannon’s House Program is unique in its approach. Our primary goal is to help participants manifest their potential, developing insight and awareness as well as through learning and practicing the important life skills necessary to be successful both emotionally and practically. Both therapeutic and mentoring relationships with our staff facilitate growth and support long-term change. AIM focuses on integrated change and does not place high value on superficial change for the sake of appearance. We realize that changing self destructive behavior is difficult and not always a linear path. We expect there to be bumps in the road along the way. We help ease this transition by providing a safe environment to discuss the reality of daily challenges our participants face.
