The LifeSet program provides transition services to young adults, ages 17-23, who are leaving the foster care, juvenile justice, and mental health systems, or who would otherwise find themselves without the necessary skills and resources to live successfully at this critical junction in their young lives.

The program model provides a proven level of intense case management in that the LifeSet staff is available to the young adults 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The assigned Specialists make a minimum of one face-to-face contact per week with each youth at the youth’s home, job, or wherever is most convenient. The number of sessions can be increased as needed to match the individual needs of each young adult.

The LifeSet program integrates both clinical and case management components to help ensure young people are engaged in the program and establish permanency, work towards their education, employment, and housing goals, and build basic independent living skills.

Housing Prep 

The Housing Prep program is a 12-week program that serves young people ages 18-23 who are aging out of DHS custody, facing housing instability, or who otherwise find themselves without appropriate housing skills.

It offers weekly, sequential lessons over 12 weeks to help young people build vital knowledge and skills around obtaining and maintaining independent, stable housing. In collaboration with the LifeSet Program and on-staff Housing Specialist, participants also have access to individualized case management services.
