Many of our foster care youths between the ages of 16-19 have no adult in their lives to help guide them towards independence. The goal of THPP is to help youths emancipate successfully by providing a safe environment for a youth to practice the life skills necessary to live independently. Participants may live alone or with roommates in apartments and single-family dwellings. Regular support and supervision is provided by TLC staﬀ that includes social workers and childcare workers. Currently, TLC is licensed to work with 30 youths between the ages of 16-19. We primarily serve adolescents residing in Sonoma County but can accept referrals from other counties..
Support services include:
The maximum time for THPP participation is 24 cumulative months.Once accepted into the program, a host home or apartment rental unit is provided. In addition, TLC provides basic furniture and household appliances along with miscellaneous furnishings. Students are also eligible for scholarships from our Children’s Enrichment Fund.
