NJ Transitional Living
NJ Transitional Living Program is a transitional living program for teenagers and young adults who have aged out of foster care and who are at-risk of becoming homeless. This program provides a variety of important services for its residents. This is greatly important to ensure that we prevent young adult homelessness and help every young person find a place to belong. And although youth are considered legally adults at age 18, for most people, the transition to independence is a gradual one. During these transition years, young people’s families provide financial assistance, help them decide on a career and/or help them while they learn how to live on their own. Unfortunately, youth in foster care don’t have this luxury: one minute they are children depending on the state for food, clothing, shelter and health care and the next minute they are on their own. Thus, they face high rates of homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, early pregnancy and jail time. NJ Transitional Living Program provides the supports every young person is in need and deserving of.
|Eligibility||Currently we are serving the ages 18-21 of young people who age out of the New Jersey's foster care system. We do require that if you are living in one of our homes that you are willing to have a job and/or in school.|
