The Transitional Living Program (TLP) at The Center for Youth delivers case management and/or housing services to youth who are living in unstable conditions or who are homeless. The goal of the program is to help young men and women, 16-21, become self-sufficient and transition into stable housing. The Center is welcoming to all youth and strives to provide services that are respectful of the many cultural, ethnic, religious, and GLBT identities youth represent. TLP includes:
The Chrysalis House provides a beautiful living environment for young women who may be pregnant or have children for up to 18 months. The program has the capacity to serve six mothers with two additional beds for young women who are pregnant or who do not have children. We guide each woman as she assesses her needs and develops a plan to reach goals for self-sufficiency. The residents are actively involved in seeking educational programs and vocational and employment opportunities. Chrysalis House is a place where young mothers can make transformational decisions that positively impact themselves and their children under the guidance and support of a dedicated and nurturing staff.
The Transitional Living Program apartments provide safe housing for both young men and women. Each resident develops goals and carries out a plan to become independent. On a weekly basis, residents meet with their case managers and also attend life-skills workshops.
Young people in non-residential TLP meet with their case managers twice a month to develop and achieve goals for independence.
All TLP services provide case management services, which include:
