When left without support or resources, young adults aged 18 to 25 years (“transition age youth”) can face huge barriers to finding safe, affordable homes. As a result, many of these youth are at extreme risk of falling into homelessness. The Transitional Housing Program provides funding to counties for child welfare services agencies to help young adults aged 18 to 25 years find and maintain housing, with priority given to those formerly in the foster care or probation systems.
Creative Alternatives now operates a Transitional Housing Placement plus Foster Care (THP+FC) program. The THP+FC program is an option for Non Minor Dependents and provides services such as housing and financial assistance. This option is available to adults ranging from 18-20 years old and must meet the educational or employments eligibility criteria to receive these benefits.
