What We Do

Transition in Place (TIP)

Transition in Place (TIP) is the Next Step Up from Transitional Living

YES recognizes there are youth who are able to live independently and be responsible for their own apartment -- yet need the support and guidance of a case manager and the skill-building classes YES provides. 

Transitional in Place (TIP) is ideal for youth who are already in their own apartment but could benefit from more case management or who have been successful at lower levels of transitional living. 

Youth who have demonstrated a strong desire to move to the next level of self-sufficiency are eligible for this program.

  • Submit a monthly budget 
  • Have stable employment (30-days pay stub)
  • Meet with a Transition Advocate at least once a month

  • Provide W-9 from property owner

Benefits of Participating in Transition in Place (TIP)
