About Transitional Housing Programs

The goal of each region’s Transitional Housing Programs (THP) is to encourage independence and self-sufficiency for transitional age youth (TAY) with complex challenges and assist in their transition out of the Foster Care system. Pacific Clinics welcome youth who have co-occurring mental health and substance use issues and works closely with them to provide stability while supporting them in a journey toward wellness, recovery and independence.

Equipping Youth for Independence

All young people entering our THPs have a private room in a shared two-bedroom apartment. Apartments come furnished with the basic necessities of living so youth can focus on their wellness, recovery, academic and/or employment goals. Depending on the region, our THP staff offers various coaching opportunities around issues and topics fundamental to successful independent living, including several of the following opportunities, depending on the region:

  • Budget and money management
  • Roommate, neighbor and social living skills
  • Substance use behavioral change coaching
  • Emotional and mental health symptom management skills
  • Food, nutrition and cooking
  • Health, hygiene and self-care
  • Household maintenance
  • Relationships and interpersonal communication
  • Personal goal setting
  • Positive school and work habit development
  • Medical care coaching
  • Future housing planning
  • Transportation tutorials
  • Career development and employment options
  • Educational opportunities and financial aid

Our teams work closely with our youth clients, their family and community partners to provide trauma-informed care to appropriately treat multiple needs with individualized services. The client’s voice and choice is the driver behind the service plans. Our approach is strength-based, needs-driven, respecting the unique background and aspirations of each person.

Our THP teams honor the youth’s stage of readiness for change and provide appropriate support in achieving their goals. Our clients may receive one or more of the following types of support as they move toward independence:

  • Interventions for complex needs and co-occurring disorders
  • Time-limited supportive housing
  • On-site case management services
  • Encouragement of follow-up treatments
  • Life skills training and education
  • Linkage to community resources such as food stamps, social security, education and employment, career exploration, substance abuse treatment, medical treatment, legal services and recreational activities and more.
