YES offers a Transitional Living Program (TLP) which provides long-term services to runaway and homeless youth, ages 16 to 21. TLP residents live in apartment-style homes for a maximum of 18 months and work closely with case managers to set and accomplish several goals.

The TLP program is designed to provide an environment in which youth will be able to develop the ability to function independently in the community. TLP offers:

  • Supervised housing
  • Life skills training
  • Mental health counseling
  • Medical screening and referrals
  • Case management
