What are the Building Milestones Transition Aged Youth Programs?

Many transition aged youth that experience various mental health challenges miss critical life development milestones.

Due to various circumstances, these youth had to delay milestones like their first job, their first bank account, learning to cook, and others. The skills built around these milestones are crucial points on the road to adulthood.

This innovative program offers opportunities for youth ages 16 to 24 to acquire the life skills needed to successfully transition to adulthood and have the tools to live a more independent life.

If this describes you, a family member, or someone receiving  services from you, please contact us.

All programs are free of charge
