How TLP Works

The Program

Provides housing for up to (12) young adults, ages 18-21. These young adults can be in the custody of DHS or have previously exited care and are receiving voluntary services, or they could be classified as runaway/homeless youth. The duration of their placement at HWAM TLP is limited to 24 months or the young adults 22nd birthday.

Investing in Young Adults

This program has a fee structure and has house expectations similar to college dorm living. This is not a hand-out program, our goal is independence and self-sufficiency. Residents are required to meet with a transition navigator weekly for goal setting and accountability. The objective is to direct young lives to make wise choices to become successful, productive adults.

Who is Eligible?

  • Are between 18- 21 years old
  • Are in DHS custody, receiving voluntary services, or are homeless
  • Can meet weekly with a Transition Navigator
  • Want to finish high school, obtain a GED, enroll in further education, or gain employment
  • Can attend regularly scheduled skill-building groups monthly

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The program will focus on the Four Core Outcomes to end homelessness, including;
– Stable Housing
– Permanent Connections
– Social / Emotional Well-being
– Education / Employment
The big picture is to give our young adults a safe home to experience unconditional love, have caring and supportive adults in their lives and to let them know that their lives have worth and value, and to help them push through hard times to become the adults they were created to be.
