Please review the details of each transitional facility to make sure you obtain the correct information.

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.
