Transitional Housing Programs for Emancipating Foster Youth

Help Build the Bridge Between Foster Care and Independence

Each year in California at least 4,000 young adults leave their foster homes and need housing. More than half of them do not have a place to go. This program provides a safe living environment while teaching them life skills that help them become self-sufficient. The only comprehensive housing program of its kind, THP-Plus offers young adults age 18-24 the option to live in a multi-family housing unit, a single site, or with a host family.

In addition to a place to live, young adults in the program receive the following supportive services:

Basic Needs

  • Financial (security deposit, rent, and utilities)
  • Apartment furnishings
  • Transportation assistance
  • Post-program housing assistance

Emotional Support
