Thanks to the St. Germaine Children’s Charity, we now have the funds needed to launch a new website providing critical resources for teens as they transition into adulthood.
The upcoming “Successful Transition” program was made possible from the seed money provided by a $200,000 Neighborhood Builders grant from by Bank of America last November. The program includes a unique, multi-faceted assessment, development of a transition plan, as well as coach/mentor role to ensure the teen is supported in implementing the plan. The grant from St. Germaine Children’s Charity adds the crucial component of a comprehensive online resource to help youth as they transition into adulthood.
The Successful Transition website will include resources to aid in finding jobs and housing, as well as provide information to help with independent living, money management, safety, nutrition, emotional and behavioral well-being and more.
Stay tuned as we will be sharing more details about this very exciting project over the next few months!
