Transitional Living Program

Preparing young adults for successful independence

This program serves female youth between the ages of 18 and 21 who are in extended foster care to help prepare them to be self-sufficient.

Twelve furnished efficiency apartments house one youth each and include utilities and basic cable/internet service. Residents meet regularly with a therapist who helps them set goals toward independence and learn life skills. Our staff provides individual coaching and guidance for young adults, along with resources to prepare them for independence.

“I grew up and feel successful, able to maintain employment, budgeting, independent living skills and healthy relationships.”
