“When I ran away from home I didn’t think I would ever go back. There were so many problems. But, when I lived at Stormbreak, I learned how I could make some changes in the way I reacted to things. My family got counseling too.
I’m home again and things are better now.”

Stormbreak is a girls group home that provides dependent and delinquent girls ages 12 – 19 with the opportunity to re-engage themselves in their own lives. Through real-life experiences in the home and in the community, girls have opportunities to improve their moral reasoning, self control and independent skills.

The Stormbreak home provides a highly structured, yet nurturing environment for up to nine girls who are working towards permanency with family, foster care or other permanent living. A focus on the individual is the basis of the program’s success. Positive change for the individual and family is our goal.
