Transitional Living Programs for Homeless Adolescents.
Jarvis, Sara V.; Robertson, Robert M., Jr.
This report presents a conceptual framework for developing, reviewing, and evaluating transitional living programs (TLPs) for homeless adolescents. It is designed to be used by those in the field who are or will be developing such programs. All TLPs share basic elements and each of these is described so that TLP providers can understand what their programs need. Chapters examine special populations whose emotional, medical, or life situations present unique obstacles to their successful transition to independent living. Information is presented on these special subgroups in order to identify the issues and needs relevant to the provision of transitional living services to these populations. Program considerations are discussed for adolescents with developmental delays, for youth who are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, and for pregnant and parenting adolescents. In addition, the report provides a 24-item annotated bibliography of "practitioner friendly" articles or works that are current, easily accessible, and significant to the development, understanding, or review of transitional living services for homeless adolescents. Finally, program profiles are offered that exemplify various aspects of "ideal" transitional living programming. (Contains 40 references.) (GLR)
