An Introduction to Visitation House:
(Video by Paula Tabar)
Residents follow a three phase process.
Phase 1: Orientation
During the two-week orientation period, you should be adjusting to living at Visitation House. You will be helped at every step as you learn the rules, adjust to the new faces here, and start making new friends with other residents. You will not see your family or friends until you completed the orientation.
Phase 2: Living at Visitation House
During Phase 2, you are expected to know and follow the rules of Visitation House. In phase 2, a resident is beginning to take initiative in every area. You should be working on your issues and beginning to trust and openly discuss your needs. Phase 2 is a time to develop coping skills as you learn to work to overcome past hurts, disappointments and memories. At this phase you must be increasingly more responsible and trustworthy and be reliable in the house.
Phase 3: Leadership
The Leadership phase is when residents have become mature leaders, taking responsibility and being trustworthy. The primary focus is to obtain permanent housing and/or family reunification, while continuing to follow the rules of the program.
