This article reports the program evaluation findings of a male juvenile halfway house. An analysis of three program aspects is provided: (a) program components, (b) a review of closed resident records, and (c) Department of Juvenile Justice program indicators. Using 101 cases, a juvenile offender descriptive profile is presented as an important ingredient for interpreting program needs and focus. Using existing literature, the program is compared to other similar juvenile halfway houses. Recommendations are made for future practice and program evaluation in this area.
