Transitional Housing Placement is a program for foster youth age 16-18. This program was created to assist youth in becoming independent before 18.
In this program, youth live with a live-in mentor and, generally, one other youth, in a roommate situation.
This is a great program to give youth extra help and time to gain independence. The youth get a first-time experience paying their own bills, grocery shopping, and taking care of themselves.
