Transition to Adulthood

While 18 means you are legally recognized as an adult, it does not mean you are ready to immediately bear the burden of financial and housing responsibilities by yourself. Thousands of young men and women are released from foster care every year upon turning 18 without any support, and often no place to live. The Transition to Adulthood Program is for young adults between the ages of 16 and 21 who need help preparing for the future. In addition to working with former and current foster care teens, we also assist adolescents with behavioral health conditions.

Over the course of this program, we help teens with:

  • Career planning
  • Daily living skills
  • Enrolling in college
  • Finance management
  • Housing
  • Communication
  • Social relationship
  • Building community connections

We work one on one with clients to develop personal relationships that let these young adults know someone is on their side. A support system is a major asset when preparing for the road ahead, and through group sessions and activities we connect teens with others going through similar situations so they can share experiences and back each other up.

Call 602.256.0528 for more information about the Transition to Adulthood program. We look forward to assisting you!
