About the Program

The Transitional Living Program (TLP) is a 7-room co-ed program where youth-led families can receive appropriate housing and support services as they prepare for independent living.

Residents of TLP are provided with basic housing needs and parenting support.  Each meets weekly with a case manager to discuss progress toward goals.  Youth can stay in TLP for up to 24 months or until their 25th birthday. They are encouraged to find employment and cover the costs of their food.

More than 95% of youth exit TLP into a permanent independent living situation.

“I have had a lot of bad luck in my life but WAIT House was my little blessing.  I met people I grew to love because they are great to everyone, even those who didn’t want to be helped.  They are proof that there are good people in this world.” — Penelope M.
