The HEARTH Transitional Living Program provides supervised housing for male and female youth ages 18-21 for 18 months.
During their stay in the program, all of a youth’s living expenses are taken care of so they can focus on accomplishing goals that will ensure success in their future. Each youth sets goals specific to their situation to transition from the program to stable housing, obtain their high school diploma and/or college degree, receive needed vocational training to gain and maintain employment, develop permanent connections with caring adults, and improve their social-emotional well-being. During their stay in the program, they gain life skills such as conflict resolution, money management, meal planning and preparation, goal setting, and more.
This program is designed to be similar to dormitory-style housing with clustered apartments leased by Youth Focus. Two youth share a two-bedroom apartment, and one apartment serves as the staff office and a common gathering space for program participants.
Located in High Point, NC, this program allows youth some independence while still having staff support nearby as they learn and practice independent living skills. Youth who have benefited greatly from this program include homeless youth and young people who have aged out of the foster care system without the needed support to live successfully on their own.
