Transition & Alumni Services

Lifetime Commitment

“Once a Rawhide guy…always a Rawhide guy” is our motto.

We provide transition & alumni services to any Rawhide guy who has gone through one of our programs when they need help. This is available whether they have been out of the program for four months or forty years.

Our primary goal is to equip students with a support network.  It is also a resource for alumni to call for encouragement and assistance in finding outside resources to meet their needs in a crisis.

Beginning Transition

Beginning shortly after a student’s arrival at Rawhide, an aftercare plan is assembled based on the student’s personal, family, and community needs. This plan is to be followed by the young man throughout his stay at Rawhide and on every home visit so he can begin developing a new life for himself.

We provide assistance to help students back into their community. This network of resources can include:

  • Potential employers
  • Counseling
  • Mentors
  • Churches & youth groups
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Families and relationships
  • Educational opportunities

Financial Assistance for Alumni

Rawhide is able to provide financial assistance to alumni. We can help pay for:

  • Tuition
  • Books
  • Room & board
  • Transportation
  • Medical bills
  • Emergency needs


The amount of financial assistance provided for alumni services will depend on the alumnus’ circumstances and the funds available at the time.
