The Transitions program is an innovative housing and support program for 16−17 year old youth who need extra time before reconnecting with family or transitioning to an alternative living space.
Teens share a bedroom with another teen. Home-cooked meals are provided in the community kitchen. The facility also includes a living room, game room, laundry facility, and computer lab. In exchange, teens participate in household chores and attend once-a-week house meetings.
Case managers work closely with program participants. Together, they identify goals, find resources to achieve goals, and work through obstacles. Case managers teach life skills and lend emotional support when needed.
Youth are encouraged to continue education. Study space is available and tutoring assistance is available.
Paid employment is available at The Bridge through the Ambassador Program. Onsite employment includes cooking, administrative work, and odd jobs. For a copy of our Bridge for Youth program brochure click here.
