Transitional living

The Transitional Living Program is designed to assist young adults between the ages of 16 - 21 in need of support and guidance while transitioning to adulthood. The program provides a host home, life skills training, educational support, and assistance with finding employment. At the completion of this 21-month program, these young adults will be pursuing or will have completed their educational goals, will be employed, will be in a supportive relationship with a trained adult mentor, and will be living independently.

The Transitional Living Program also offers bi-monthly meetings to empower participating youth by discussing the obstacles and barriers faced by adolescents who try to live independently. The meetings are attended by transitioning youth and representatives from agencies offering support and assistance in overcoming the obstacles and barriers to independent living.



The Transitional Living program is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau and the Bernard McDonough Foundation. The program is operated in partnership with Youth Services System, Inc., of Wheeling, WV.
