Our Transitional-Age Youth (TAY) Program works with young adults between the ages of 18 and 27.

Who We Serve

This time of life may be especially difficult for individuals who have had serious mental health challenges during adolescence. They may be more at-risk for problems with homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, unwanted pregnancy, and substance use or addiction issues.

TAY Services

During the intake process, our staff collaborates with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health to assess individuals’ needs. TAY staff then work with each program participant and his or her family to develop a personalized care plan.

Outreach and case management staff members help participants gain access to health care and treatment, pursue educational goals, enter into rehabilitation and recovery programs, develop vocational and social skills, and secure housing and employment.

TAY offers a limited number of supportive housing options for young adults who require more intensive support. As participants then transition to permanent housing, the program continues to offer post-discharge support through case management services.

Outreach and case management services help participants gain access to health care and treatment, pursue educational goals, enter into rehabilitation and recovery programs, develop vocational and social skills, and secure housing and employment.
