Transition to Independence Program
The Transition to Independence program is a subsection of the case management department that focuses on providing case management services to teens and young adults between the ages of 14 – 24.
Transition Facilitators are not only trained to overall case management duties (see case management services section) but also understand that as young people approach adulthood, that it’s important for them to begin making decisions for themselves and so services focus on building that independence.
Transition Facilitators have a low ration of clients (10:1) to ensure that they have the ability to provide hands-on interventions on a regular basis, which helps youth and young adults to learn skills faster to ensure they are prepared to be independent.
The Transition to Independence program works with youth and individuals they have identified as key players in their lives to help increase knowledge and skills in;
- Community Life Functioning
- Career and Employment
- Personal Effectiveness and Well-being
