The Transitional Living Program (TLP) at Promise House equips homeless youth ages 18 through 21 years old with the skills and education necessary to become independent, productive adults. The program’s goal is to help formerly homeless youth develop much-needed independent living skills in a nurturing environment that offers stability, consistency and safety. Created for older teens who truly have no other resources, the program provides no-cost:
- Shelter (up to 18 months) and basic necessities like food and clothing
- Medical and dental care
- Psychological assessments and mental health services
- Education assistance
- Job aptitude evaluation and career planning services
- Life skills training
- Recreational opportunities
- Assistance locating and leasing apartments
- Case management
Youth can move through the program at their own pace and retain access to counseling and case management services even after exiting Promise House.
LGBT Group Home
Because LGBT teens face a particularly high risk of becoming homeless and often arrive with a unique set of additional needs, Promise House has created a group home to serve these youth. Clients in this group home receive specialized counseling and case management, in addition to all services listed above.
Rapid Rehousing Program
Youth in the Rapid Rehousing Program are placed in an apartment and receive three or six months of rent, case management, and support services similar to those received by our residential clients. Each youth receives a Case Manager who serves as their point of contact – helping them navigate community resources and learn to live independently.M
