The Transitional Housing Programs in Kane
and DuPage counties service homeless young adults struggling
independence and who currently have no place to reside. The apartments
in both locations offer case management seven days per week
provide a safe, secure, and supportive environment. Residents
can reside in either program for a period of 4-24 months, with
flexibility to ensure the achievement of the program goal-Independence.
All residents must find a part-time to
full-time job if they are not employed at the time of intake.
The case manager evaluates each resident's needs through the intake
process. All residents must agree to follow the program contracts.
This will include, but not be limited to, curfew, apartment maintenance,
employment, schooling, community groups, budgeting, individual
treatment planning, and abstinence from all mood-altering substances.
A case manager will provide individual
case management to all residents of the program. All treatment
plans, goals, and objectives will be based upon each individual's
needs. This will include lifeskills, crisis intervention, coordinating
services with community resources, and implementing vocational
and educational programming. Residents are educated in goal-setting
and learn to achieve goals by making better choices.
