Class of Housing/Services: Transitional Housing, Non Profit Organization
This is a Non Profit Organization that provides Transitional Housing. Review the details below: The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a difficult transition, even with an intact family structure. Recent studies have shown that the average young person must rely on parental support during this transitional period, and do not actually become self-sufficient until age 26. By contrast, youth exiting the foster care systems do not have this option; they are cut off from their sole support system at age 18. Where most teens are entering this time of their life with a sense of awe and opportunity, foster kids are left in a state of desperation. Without a home to return to, they often sleep on couches, in cars or turn themselves in to the local homeless shelter. For these kids the future is bleak.Our mission is to provide teens with housing, life sustaining higher education and access back to services.To dramatically impact statistics in regards to homelessness, education and mental health outcomes for this population. Fees may apply for this Transitional Housing resource. Contact The Teen Project with the contact information we provided to get full details. Oftentimes you can apply for sliding scale fee payment or other options if you are low income. You will need to speak with them to see if you qualify.
