Our Residential Program

Healing in Community

When you join our Residential Program, you are joining a community of women who have been exploited and are on a similar journey.

 

Our homes are supportive environments filled with acceptance, growth and creativity without any judgment. While you heal and work through your difficult experiences, Amirah is a place where you will be supported, encouraged and challenged. Our homes have structure, but there is room for individual decisions that will allow you to move forward, grow and change.

What would I do at Amirah's Residential Program?

We provide a safe place for you to stay while you work on trauma-recovery. Our program is designed to address trauma in an individualized way through wholistic care. This means that your program will be addressing your goals and the things you would like to achieve as your work through trauma-recovery.

 

We will work with you to understand where your strengths are, and what areas you would like to work on. You will have options to choose from along the way, so you can work towards your goals in ways where you feel supported. 

 

YOU are at the center of your growth and healing process.

Our Care Team of clinicians, survivor-mentors, staff, volunteers, and community partners will work alongside you and be a loving support system.

What can't I do at Amirah?

We believe that healing happens in community. In order to live in community, this means that each woman that comes into this program is asked to stop doing the following:

  • Judge: happiness and understanding can be found when there is no judgment.

  • Not Participate: Our community is filled with hope, support, and opportunities, and we expect you to take advantage of our community.

We operate safe homes. This does mean that there are safety measures taken to ensure that everyone has a chance at healing. Some of these safety measures are temporary and as you progress through your program, you will able to gain access to these things again (ex: cellphone - we start first without one, but as you build support, this is something you become eligible to access again). There are other safety measures that are permanent though (ex: we are a sober home, so we do expect that you are willing to engage in sober living).

Many of the rules and regulations will be discussed at an intake interview. We do understand if we are not the right spot for you, and hope that you will continue to seek the support that will be best for you.

We are here to

  • Listen to you

  • Give you a safe space

  • Connect you with yourself, our supportive community, and with the purposes you were designed for

  • Walk alongside you

  • Let you succeed

  • Help you find the resources that will bring change to your life

  • Give you the tools for what comes next after you leave our program

We are NOT here to...

  • Rescue you

  • Control you

  • Offer a one-size-fits-all approach

  • Fix you

  • Make decisions for you

  • Give up!
