Huschka House Transitional Living Program provides homeless* young adults, ages 18-21, with the skills and services they need to make a successful transition into adulthood.
The maximum amount of time a young adult can be in the program is 18 months.
*Applicants must meet the definition of "homeless" - either
literally homeless (currently staying at a shelter or sleeping
someplace not meant for human habitation), about to be
homeless, or escaping domestic violence. Applicants also need
to be able to show that they have no other resources
(financial, family) to be able to obtain housing on their own.
