Transitional Living Program
Our Transitional Living Program (TLP) provides temporary housing for homeless youth, ages 18-24, for up to two years. The TLP program provides a structured setting in which residents receive guidance with gaining the skills necessary for living independently. Youth work individually with our case management team to create an individualized case plan that focuses on education, employment or benefits, independent living skills, money management, health and mental health stability, permanent housing, and fostering permanent supportive relationships. Youth who reside in our TLP have opportunities to participate in community service events, cultural events, and outdoor education trips during their stay. Youth work with their case management team to transition back home, into permanent supportive housing, or to live independently.
