YES' Transitional Living Program (TLP) is for those youth ready to take the initiative to better their own lives. Our case managers work closely with TLP clients to provide guidance and to help them accomplish the goals they've set out for themselves.
TLP residents are required to work and perform community service at least 8-10 hours per month. Additionally, TLP residents are required to attend school if they have not received their high school diploma or GED.
We believe by encouraging our youth to take responsibility and make connections within the community, they will learn the skills necessary to become independent.
100 percent of graduates will complete eight life skills workshops.
90 percent will have enrolled in a GED or high school program if not yet completed.
100 percent will participate in a career consultation.
100 percent will maintain acceptable attendance according to school policy.
100 percent will secure employment.
90 percent will have achieved an "advanced" rating within the housing assessment category.
100 percent will identify someone safe they can rely on at discharge.
95 percent will report improved relationships.
90 percent will demonstrate the ability to live independently by participating in the rental requirements of the program.
85 percent will secure safe, stable housing upon exiting the program.
85 percent will show improvement in Ansell-Casey Life Skills Assessment scores by discharge.
80 percent will have advanced their education/grade level or be employed.
