Home Goods Advocacy
We first welcome our clients through our Home Goods Advocacy Program. This is the time when we help our clients set up their homes, get to know them and their needs, and figure out together what level of support they need. For some clients, this stage is enough.If so, we still maintain contact with them to ensure housing stability.
Comprehensive Services Program
For other clients, this is where the real work begins. In our Comprehensive Services Program, our focus is working on goals for educational, employment and socio-emotional needs.
CSP services include
Housing stability,parenting items,tuition issues,enrollment challenges, resume writing,job searches, education needs,GED or vocational programs, financial literacy, positive self care etc
When a youth turns 27 they are no longer eligible for the HGA or CSP programs. But we do not abandon them! They join our Alumni Program
