Dimondale focuses on teaching our youth how to bear responsibility for her own successful life outcome. We focus on helping our youth progress towards self-sufficiency. Dimondale has point system in place to give our residents a sense of accountability and responsibility. Residents receive points in the following areas: school attendance, homework and assignment completion, personal hygiene, chore completion, respect for staff and peers, attitude and social interaction. Although at Dimondale we realize life-long success and accomplishments are not based on a point system, the premise of this procedure is to motivate and encourage our residents to make desirable and well-reasoned decisions.
