Supporting Homeless Youth during the Transition to Adulthood: Housing-Based Independent Living Programs
Dworsky, Amy
Prevention Researcher, v17 n2 p17-20 2010
While many young people depend on parental financial and emotional support well past the age of 18, those who are homeless must make the transition to adulthood without that support. This article discusses the needs of homeless youth as they transition to adulthood. It then describes three housing-based independent living programs designed to address these needs, Lighthouse Youth Services Independent Living Program in Cincinnati, Teen Living Programs in Chicago, and The Chelsea Foyer in New York. The article concludes with a discussion about why the needs of so many homeless youth are still not being addressed. (Contains 1 table.)
