The Transitional Living Program (TLP) was developed to assist young adults in transitioning into self-sufficiency and prevent long term dependency on the social service system. Housing is provided at a nominal rent, along with continuing staff support and guidance for young adults that have exited the child-protective or juvenile justice system. The program is located at 123 Amherst Street (an apartment building with 3 one-bedroom units and 2 two-bedroom units) and 117 Amherst Street (a two-bedroom single-family home). Young Adults entering the TLP must be between 18 and 20 years of age, and will have, in most instances, remained in care until “aging out.” Participants must qualify for “low-income” housing, as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
