Transition In Place
The Transition In Place Program provides transitional housing services homeless youth ages 18-21 and their minor dependents.
The purpose of the program is to teach these young adults the skills necessary to become self sufficient in the community. Participants are eligible for services through the outreach center and are provided intensive support from case managers. Transition In Place Program uses a Scattered Site model that empowers participants to make successful transitions into permanent, market-rate housing. We utilize private rental agencies to provide the housing and utilize grant funding to lease units. Clients will receive support from the Haven House Street Outreach Center before formally entering the program to prepare them for successful participation and to ensure eligibility. Housing subsidies can be provided for up to 18 months. Each client will assist staff with developing an individualized service plan that best fits their needs. Participants leaving the program are provided an aftercare plan that includes continued supportive services for at least six months and in some cases longer after discharge. The Transition in Place program works with young adults that range in age from 18 to 21. Staff with the Transition In Place Program work out of the Outreach Center.
