Transitional Residential Care for youth aged 15 to 21 who are preparing to leave care, return home or move on to independent living
•Youth, who grew up as children on the street, often relapse back to substance abuse, problematic behaviour, or street life once they leave residential care.
•Youth in care need independent living skills, personal interests, social networks, and maturity if they are to succeed.
•Youth in care need a less institutional environment within which they can take more personal responsibility, help manage their daily lives, complete their schooling and developing work, tertiary study, extra mural and community-work experience
•Youth in care need an intense youth focused therapeutic program to deal with deep underlying trauma
•Youth who leave care need formal and ongoing networks and aftercare support.
