Consequences for Rule Infractions

There are consequences for residents who do not do their chores, break curfew, or violate other rules. This series of consequences applies to all rule violations except for fundamental rules.

First Offense - verbal warning

Second Offense – consequences appropriate to the rule broken (additional chores, etc.)

Third Offense – contract with the case manager and youth worker to determine the best way to address the situation. Contracting is mandatory. If a resident refuses to contract, then staff may write a contract that the resident must follow in order to stay at the shelter.

Fourth Offense – 24 hour suspension

Fifth Offense – 48 hour suspension

Sixth Offense - Discharge

It is possible to go from the first consequence through the sixth in a single incident, depending on the rule violation and situation.
