Neen Cares Intervention Services
Neen Cares program “Juanita’s House,” is designed to provide a safe, stable, trauma informed, residential facility for women who have had prolonged and recurrent traumatic experiences in their lives and struggle with substance abuse, incarceration, mental health and homelessness.
The vision of this program is to offer an opportunity for our “partners” who have recently been released from some form of incarceration, substance abuse or half-way house, an opportunity to address the trauma some may have experienced as early as childhood, with the hope that after successful completion, they will have the tools needed to be the productive and gifted citizens they were created to be, and move forward living a healthy lifestyle.
Research has demonstrated the connection between traumatic experiences and the impact they have on one’s mental health, decision making and criminal activity. Juanita’s House will provide a safe space not just for our partners to become self -aware, but it will offer a wholistic approach to the true healing from trauma. Partners will participate in ongoing counseling through group and individual sessions administered by licensed and trauma informed trained therapist. Case Managers knowledgeable of community resources will be linked with each partner to provide assistance during the program as well as aftercare support. We recognize the individuality of our partners and ensure that counseling, case management and life skill classes are tailored to each of their needs (housing, education and employment) at the beginning of their journey and will be modified as the need arises. All professionals involved in the program are trauma informed care trained and have met all standards required to become a Neen Cares team member.

Tools for Healthy Living
Many people stick with what’s familiar because we’re conditioned by our environments. Many trauma survivors live in survival mode. They revert to old ways or bad habits to get by. Our life coaching can help them develop tools to make healthier decisions. We use Tonier’s Relationship after Trauma book as a guide, when working with families and community members.
We offer a safe environment for those who have yet to find their voice. Through our Peer to Peer Program, we are able to provide opportunities for knowledge to be acquired. This unique program allows experiences to be shared and hope found. We offer emotional, social and practical help through group and individual sessions.
Neen Cares Youth Sports and Community Outreach Services
