Transitional Living Programs
Transitional living programs are designed for young people over 18 needing a safe, supportive environment and life skills training as they transition into adulthood. Many transitional living programs offer access to 12-step programs and may have a psychiatric component. Generally they will offer educational programs that are linked to community colleges or universities, or provide schooling at their location. Volunteering, employment arrangements, community service, and re-integration into the community at large are general components of the transitional living programs. Many operate on a small residential model and transition to a community based, independent living apartment model.
