Our Transitional Living Program

SafeShelter’s Transitional Living Program (TLP) provides safe and supervised long-term housing and essential supportive services such as life skills, counseling, education & job readiness supports, and aftercare for older youth, ages 16-21 who have experienced chronic homelessness.  

Once accepted into the program, participants work closely with a case manager on an individualized plan built around the areas of education, employment, life skills, and work experience internships.  Our TLP offers the stability of safe housing while participants follow goals designed to move them toward self-sufficiency.  Participants, who are working hard to follow through with their case plan and adhering to program guidelines, are able to stay in the program for up to 18 months.  

The goal of the Transitional Living Program is that youth we work with feel safe, become self-sufficient young adults, and have a sense of well-being which increases their ability to make permanent connections back to the community they’ve felt so isolated from.
