The Day Reporting program is a co-ed program for youth who have been identified to be at  -  risk for removal from the home. These youth may be demonstrating behaviors that require intervention or are just in need of additional support to aid in their success.

Youth assigned to this program are provided intensive supervision, educational planning and assistance, independent living skills, community and recreational activities, and community service projects. Youth will also participate in activities and discussions focused on addressing thinking errors, anger management, and other prosocial skills that may be identified once referred to the program.

Youth attend the Day Reporting program from 4 - 8 hours per day. Participation, progress, and activities completed are communicated on a regular basis to the placing agency and courts. The Day Reporting program is offered in Delaware County & Henry County.

Supervision & Care

The Day Reporting program provides supervision, meals, and snacks. The daily schedule provides structure for program attendees; it helps to ensure the kids stay on task and are working to complete the goals set for them at admission.

Academic Support

Daily homework help is available to students attending this program. There is also ample time and resources for youth to participate in online school programs.

Prosocial Skills

Day Reporting staff are trained to implement evidenced  -  based curriculum that teaches communication skills, conflict resolution, anger management, coping mechanisms, etc.

Independent Living Skills

Day Reporting staff tailor independent living activities and experiences to the needs of each individual youth attending. Examples could include learning about post  -  secondary opportunities, completing the FAFSA, help with gaining employment, cooking, creating resumes, and budgeting.

Recreation Opportunities

Youth attending the Day Reporting program will have opportunities to attend the local YMCA, play various sports at nearby parks, or just have some down time playing card/board games with staff.

Positive Social Interactions

Opportunities for staff  -  led social interaction are built in to the daily schedule. Topics discussed could include current events and how youth are responding, individual or group goal setting, or step  -  by  -  step instruction on working through problems/situations as they arise.

Community Engagement

Youth will have the opportunity to become involved in their community. They will learn the resources available to them and the importance of giving back through community service activities. Examples could range from learning how to utilize public transportation to volunteering at the local food bank.
