Specifically for young people aged 16-18 years old, Transitional Housing Placement Program serves those transitioning out of foster care.
THPP at Hanna works to help participants transition to housing independence with a safe, secure environment, life skills development, and expert staff who teach and encourage self-sufficiency. THPP participants live with roommates in cottages and group homes and have access to individual, family and group therapy, rehabilitation, comprehensive clinical case management and medication support. Each residence is staffed with a youth counselor, a trained peer who works to facilitate group cohesion, resolve conflicts, and support participants. Youth Counselors work with residential coordinators, adult staff available on-call at all times.
Participants are taught a variety of life skills, including cooking, budgeting, finding employment and preparing for life away from a protected environment.
Group Homes: Each group home has semi-private bedrooms (two male youth to a room), bathrooms, a living room, game room, study area with access to computers, laundry, a full kitchen and a dining room where residents can prepare and enjoy their meals.
Group meetings, circles and other activities in the residences encourage participants to communicate openly with each other, respect one another and treat each other well.
