The Transitional Care program is designed for young people who need help, guidance and support. Trained professional staff teach them how to become productive citizens through career counseling, caseworker & caretaker support and creating a plan for transitioning back into the community. Currently there are three programs within the Transitional Care program.
The Supervised Independent Living program provides transitional living for young men and women, 18-21 years of age, coming from the Department of Social Services, Foster Care division.
The Right Path program is a 12-18 month program for young men and women, ages 17-21, who have been recently released from the Suffolk County Department of Corrections.
Project 180 is designed for young men and women, 18-24 years of age, who are facing the hardship of living in homeless shelters or have aged out of the foster care system.
The ultimate goal of the Transitional Care program is for participants to re-enter the community by way of securing a job, having a stabilized income, obtaining housing and becoming self-sufficient. Length of stay is based on residential and program needs.
