Touchstone Village is a Transitional Living program that has been developed out of a community need. According to the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients, 12% of the homeless population was 17-24 years old. Within three years of aging out of the foster care system, the Annie Casey Foundation reports that 37% will be incarcerated and 50% will be homeless at some point, becoming our new homeless and “disconnected” population.
Touchstone Village provides transitional living services to young adults ages 18-21 that may be homeless, aging out of foster care or in a variety of other situations which limit self-sufficiency.
Touchstone Village provides each resident with:
- Rental of an individual apartment on YCC’s campus for a nominal fee
- Life skills training
- Education planning
- Career development
- Vocational training
- Social & personal skills training
- Life coaching
- Case management
- Substance abuse treatment (as needed)
This independent living program is designed to take the individual needs of each resident into consideration, but our goal for each individual is the same: to successfully make the transition into a responsible, independent young adult.
