returning HOME

With multiple original residents of the Unatti Group Home for Girls reaching adult age,
the Unatti Reintegration Program was created in 2017 to aid the girls as they transition to independent, self-reliant members of the community.

Upon completing their education, it is common for our graduates to return to their homes of origin and become the breadwinners for their birth families. The transition back to impoverished surroundings, with roles of leadership in a male-dominated culture, can be challenging. Additionally, the socio-economic pressure to provide for a family and potentially begin their own requires culturally-sensitive preparation and support.

The program’s reintegration officer begins working individually with each girl two years prior to their transition. Each transition is tailor-made to each individual’s specific needs and circumstances.
