Our service population of transitional aged young people are getting kicked out of wherever they are living at eighteen years old. They are the ones who are moving from one sofa or floor to another and after a few nights they are told their time is up and must find another place to live. This lifestyle becomes a daily mode of survival. If this cycle is not broken, more and more of our young people will drop out of school, be unable to locate employment, and potentially get caught up in the legal system.
Our vision is to create a community focused on providing residential supportive housing that will enable homeless young adults to live in an environment of stability and safety. The residential services will provide a daily structure of school attendance(High School, Vocational Training, Community College and or a Four-Year University)along with working a minumum of twenty hours a week with a requirement to participant in the Finanicial 3-3-3 Plan. Our program moves participants through three phases from “homeless to homeownership” if so desired.
All participants will receive case management connecting them to a supportive network of community partners who will assist in ensuring each person’s specific needs are addressed.
