Transitional Living Program and Maternity Group Home Funding Available Now
The Transitional Living Program and Maternity Group Homes fund community-based programs that address the immediate needs of runaway and homeless youth and their families. Both programs aim to increase young people's safety, well-being and self-sufficiency, and to help them build permanent connections with caring adults.
Transitional living programs provide runaway and homeless youth with safe and appropriate shelter (usually up to 18 months), along with basic life skills, like money management, interpersonal skills, job skills and parenting skills (as appropriate). Projects also offer mental and physical health care and support educational advancement.
Maternity group homes are specialized transitional living programs that help pregnant and parenting homeless youth and their children. Maternity group homes provide the same services as transitional living programs, as well as skill building in parenting, child development and family budgeting; child care; transportation; nutrition and health services; and family planning, abstinence education and pregnancy prevention services.
