Youth Programs

The Transitional Age Program (TAP) provides housing and services for youth (ages 16-24) that are homeless or ageing out of foster care.  We specifically serve youth with sever and persistent mental illness and assist them with independent living skills, employment and housing. TAP recieves funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Supportive Housing Program (HUD SHP), Nebraska Homeless Assistance Program (NHAP), and the United Way of Western Nebraska.

Program Components:

  • Provides supervised apartments where you can learn to be responsible renters and community members.
  • Provides on-site supervision with trained, experienced staff members who will assist each youth with the development and execution of their transitional living plan.
  • Provides services including information and training in basic life skills, money management, nutrition, social skills, educational advancement, job skills training, job attainment, and mental and physical health care and others.
  • Provides for the successful transition of youth into the community upon completion of the program by providing individualized aftercare assistance and support.
