Short Term & Bridge Housing Program

Our short term bridge housing program offers transition age youth housing for up to 9 months. The following 3 requirements are needed to be eligible for this program; 1. The youth is between the ages of 18 and 25, 2. the youth is currently experiencing homelessness, 3. The youth has identified as having prodromal symptoms or having qualifying Seriously Emotional Disturbance (SED) or Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI) diagnosis.
