transitional living

Our History

The Transitional Living Program began here in 1992. Youth between the ages of 17-21, attending  school or working full-time, who have the capacity, motivation, and maturity level, are eligible for the program.  We serve 18 youth in TLP on a 25 acre campus in a group home setting.  Supervised 24 hours a day and under the direction of TLP staff, each youth learns the skills necessary to eventually reside independently. Youth are cared for and supervised by a multi-disciplinary treatment team that includes a Psychiatrist, Therapists, Case Managers, a Psychiatric Nurse, and other para-professional staff. A consulting Psychologist is also available.

Our Services

It is our belief that all youth are unique and require individualized treatment approaches. Some youth require intensified training in various skill areas before moving forward to an independent living arrangement.  Transitional Living is designed to serve such youth and provide teaching in skill areas related to:

  • Job location and maintenance
  • Financial management
  • Educational goals
  • Housekeeping
  • Daily living
