PROGRAM OUTLINE

The Haag Home for Boys is a community residential facility that specializes in the treatment of at-risk males ages 16 - 24. Residents are provided with individual and group counseling; life skills training; and recreational opportunities, which emphasize the development and use of problem solving, coping, self-help and socialization skills.

Our treatment model is evidenced based and goal directed, helping residents understand and solve problems, discontinue inappropriate, destructive, damaging, or dangerous behaviors, and fulfill their individual needs.

With the help of our community partners, and the city of Junction City, this program is a great way for a youth to experience decreasing degrees of supervised independent living while earning money, paying off restitution, gaining job and social skills. Residents enjoy supervised apartment-style living while learning and practicing the skills necessary to function on their own and make their transition into the general community a successful one. The program offers three specific (yet integrated) levels of service.

Basic Residential - Is an opportunity to learn and develop the skills necessary for independent living.

ILP/Community Step-down - Is a chance to take the skills already learned and put them into practice. This is a demonstration phase.

Transition (Phase II if you have completed Phase I) Is getting ongoing program support while using the skills that have been taught and practiced in the actual community. This is the maintenance phase.

Completion time varies, but tends to last any where from 4 8 months (depending on treatment plan goals, and specific requirements by county and OYA case worker).

COMPANY PROFILE

The Haag Home has a rich history that dates back over fourty years. It was originally founded by Harold Haag and his wife Florence in 1975, as a private foster home. Harold continued to expand the program until his death in 1994 at which time Harold's son, Jeff Haag took over.  In the fall of 1997, the program transitioned to a fully certified residential treatment facility.  On January 1st 1999, the program was restructured as a level-4 Behavioral Rehabilitation Services Program.  At this time, the program focus changed from a primarily work-release program to a treatment based transitional program with a work-release component.

The campus, located in Junction City, Oregon, provides apartment-style group living quarters and support buildings for group meals and recreation. The program currently serves boys from throughout Oregon and employees 11 full-time and 4 part-time staff.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Learning to find and maintain a job is an essential part of independent living. Each client will have an employment component included in his service plan.

 

Clients will develop a resume, learn to look for employment, develop interview skills, and a solid work ethic. This will be done in increments, and at a pace set by the individual and the curriculum. Job searching and work experience will begin locally in Junction City, and may expand to Eugene as necessary. In some cases, volunteering may be incorporated in your program to assist in building your resume. Clients, who are unwilling to work and give it their best, are not appropriate for placement.

OUR MISSION

We believe each individual is capable, if they choose, to gain the skills and knowledge to think, feel and behave differently. 

Juveniles have the capacity to make good choices and must be held responsible for their decisions and actions.

By consistently challenging inappropriate thinking and behavior, individuals are empowered to make better choices.

Our goal is to assist students in identifying areas in which they need to grow and improve in order to transition safely and successfully into the community and become a productive citizen.  The focus is on the practical realities of teaching the resident how to positively cope with the 'here and now' while addressing their individual issues.
