How TLP Works
Provides housing for young adults, ages 18-21 in Jackson and Josephine Counties. 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 is a structured program with a savings account required for increased self-sufficiency. House expectations are 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 case manager weekly for goal setting and accountability. The objective is to direct young lives to make wise choices to become successful, productive adults.
