HOPE TO BUILD HEALTHY FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS.

Child, Youth, & Family Programs

Independent Living

Youth and Young Adult Services provides programs that guide and support foster youth and alumni of foster care - young adults between the ages of 14-23, as they transition from foster care to self-sufficiency. Through group training, one-on-one coaching, and adult and peer mentors, youth receive support to pursue their education, train for employment, learn financial literacy, and develop critical life skills. These include creating healthy relationships, self-advocacy, and maintaining support networks.

Youth and Young Adult Housing

The Youth and Young Adult Housing Program (YAHP) assists homeless young adults between 18-23.5 in obtaining safe and stable housing. This is a one-year rental subsidy program. With the help of a case manager, young adults will build skills to effectively search and keep stable housing. Clients will also work on Tenant rights education, financial literacy, employment, education, supportive network building. Progress towards these goals is supported through weekly case management.
