Need: $2,750,000 - Critical components such as housing, a loving family, a safe and secure environment, education, counseling, and emotional support work together to complete the comprehensive and deeper level of care we provide. However, due to state licensing regulations, these components abruptly stop once teens graduate from high school. They still need our guidance and support. Due to the lack of thorough family support, our children step out into an adult world without job skills, few of life’s daily maintenance proficiencies, no effective adult mentor-ship, and little emotional support. The Transitional Living Program is the solution. Our goal is to design a program that provides a system of support and service to young adults to help them achieve self-sufficiency. Whether they choose college, trade school, or enter the workforce, this program will continue to provide financial assistance along with other critical needs essential to achieving their career goals.This program is voluntary and requires participants to actively engage in the adult living preparation process. Our system of support will help the participant in the following areas: Tuition, Housing Allowance, Transportation, Living Expenses, Health Insurance, and Life-Skills Coaching. We will provide a goal-driven, structured environment for young adults (18-23) that will include ongoing involvement, accountability, and periodic evaluations. The vast majority of children are not ready to enter the world just because they have turned 18. The Transitional Living Program will allow MSCH to assist children beyond graduation.
