Winnie Sisu and Hawkins Home are transitional residential programs that serve female youth between the ages of 16 and 20. These programs specialize in working with young people who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing sexual exploitation, though youth without increased risk levels are able to receive services at Hawkins Home.

The programs assist residents in building the independent living skills they need as they begin their journey into young adulthood. With a focus on access to trauma-informed and client-centered care, residents receive services tailored to their individual needs and goals. Program components include but are not limited to: daily independent living skills-focused groups, one-on-one skills coaching, recreation and leisure opportunities, household management practice, vocational opportunities, and community outings.

Residents have access to a wide range of community-based resources including mental health counseling, psychiatric medication management, chemical dependency services, sexual assault advocacy, spiritual and cultural resources, medical and dental care, and off-site education services provided by ISD 31. At the completion of the program, residents are equipped with the skills necessary for a successful transition into independent living.
