Transitional Independent Living

Transitional Independent Living (TIL) facilities provide homeless youth between the ages of 16 and 21 with support and shelter as they work to establish an independent life. All TIL Programs are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

A young person in need of these longer-term residential services must first visit our Crisis Shelter and obtain a referral to Transitional Independent Living facilities. Youth may stay in the Transitional Independent Living facilities for up to 18 months. Services offered at TILs include:

  • Educational programs
  • Vocational training
  • Job placement assistance
  • Counseling
  • Basic life skills training
