The Transitional Living Program (TLP) provides supervised apartment living for older youth ages 18 to 21 whose family problems prevent them from living at home. Residents may be self-referred or referred through the DC Department of Human Services. TLP residents may live in SBY-managed apartments for up to12 months, receiving counseling and support services and learning life skills they need to live independently. TLP requires residents to be enrolled in school, work part-time, and save portions of their income. Some program residents also contribute to their rent. The TLPstaff provides counseling, life skills training, career guidance, job referrals and aftercare counseling to assist TLP graduates in living successfully on their own.
