Transporting at-risk youth... We have a very structured and deliberate process which requires full parental/guardian cooperation. This is to ensure the smoothest and safest transition from your care to ours. We provide a short application/information form so that we can be informed of the necessary medical history, medication regime, and recent at-risk behaviors of your child for the most effective and safest transport possible. We encourage a meeting with parents/guardians in person to finalize arrangements on the eve of the transport
The Process: Because at-risk children need special handling in times of transition, the following is a synopsis of what a transport could actually "look like". In the early morning of the day of the transport, it will be necessary to have parents lead us into the childs bedroom, and after gently waking the child, introduce us. After a brief introduction and explanation of who we are and where the child is going, the parents will be required to immediately leave the area. They should then go to a place in the home where they will not be seen or heard by the child, or even better, actually leave the premises. The transport team will encourage your child to dress, and then accompany your child to their waiting vehicle. It is then that the transport will begin. We will have food and beverages in the vehicle to ensure proper nourishment.
