Fred’s Club

Fred’s Club is based on a token economy model. Participants earn “Fred Bucks” based on positive behaviors or work they engage in during program. Participants then can use their Fred Bucks to purchase things at a store filled with desirable items. This leads to a significant reduction in problem behaviors. Fred’s Club is managed by one of our own participants, Karen Church (pictured).
