Where to Now? Innovative Housing Options for Homeless Young Adults Leaving TLPs
Where to Now? Innovative Housing Options for Homeless Young Adults Leaving TLPs. (2004). Kelly Agnese, Kate Golden and Jen Tyson. 30 pp.
Like all agency services, ‘aftercare’ housing programs are specifically designed to build the competence of young people and teach them how to live on their own. But housing programs have a more specific goal as well: to prevent young people from becoming homeless. This report is based on a comprehensive literature review and a series of interviews with the directors of five agencies and one housing expert in the field, all selected for their unusual commitment to developing innovative housing programs for youth leaving agency care. Where to Now? is the second in a series of reports NEN has produced on issues critical to transitional living programs serving youth. Edited by Melanie Wilson and Doug Tanner.
