Port Group Homes

PORT residents work daily on five areas of behavior that will help them transition back to their home or community. We track these behaviors so as to identify destructive patterns, intervene and teach the appropriate skills. Another benefit of this system is that a referral agent can call for an updated version of the client’s Progress Report and receive an objective and accurate picture of the client’s behavior to date. The categories tracked include: peer relations; basic behavioral expectations; school, group and study hall participation; adult and authority figure relations and room cleanliness and personal hygiene throughout the day, staff observe and rate resident’s behavior awarding “productive days” when residents meet or exceed basic behavioral expectations and “unproductive” days when they don’t.
