TRANSITIONAL AGE YOUTH (TAY)

The TAY Program is an outpatient Full Service Partnership (FSP) program serving individuals that are between the ages of 16-24. The TAY program can serve up to 150 clients at any given time.  Individuals may also be experiencing homelessness, frequent hospitalizations, incarcerations, legal troubles, drug and alcohol addictions, and family issues.  The TAY Program provides an opportunity for clients to receive mental health services, secure affordable housing, and recognize their strengths and abilities to successfully gain independence and self–sufficiency in the community.  Services are transitional in nature, with the goal for the clients to achieve self-sufficiency. This is a program that assists consumers with life transitions and empowers consumers to achieve a variety of treatment and life goals. Consumers also obtain the skills they need to learn to live independently in the community as adults.
