GreenCheckBoys who are between the ages of 16 and 20 (We will receive applications if your son is at the age of 15.6 months but we cannot accept them into the home until they are 16 years old.)
GreenCheckBoys who have become unruly in the home, school, and community.
GreenCheckBoys who have legal charges or who are at risk of legal charges. While some form of court intervention is preferable it is not required. We have found that partnering with the court is a powerful tool to keep your son at the PAYH through our program. Statistics show that longer term programs drastically increase the chances of your son’s success.
GreenCheckBoys who have chemical dependency issues, that involve alcohol and drugs but do not require detoxification.
