TRANSITIONAL LIVING, SUPPORTIVE RE-HOUSING, AND INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAMS

Transitional Living Program is a supervised apartment setting for homeless youth, ages 17-24, including pregnant and parenting teens. Youth gain education, workforce skills and life skills so they can move out on their own and become independent. Established in 1990.

 

The Supportive Transitions to Adulthood through Re-housing (STAR) and Northern New Mexico Independent Living Programs help independent youth find and move into their own apartment around Santa Fe. Youth are offered ongoing support services which help them access education, employment and health needs. STAR was established in 2016 and NNMILP in 2018. The offices for these programs are located at 4435 Airport Rd.

COLD WEATHER SHELTER

Youth Shelters and Family Services provided three months of Cold Weather Shelter in December 2017 – February 2018. We set up bunkbeds and made a cozy and welcoming space so young people and their dependent children could safely sleep out of the elements. We provided transportation so that youth from all over Santa Fe could stay with us overnight if they wished to do so. Of the 16 unduplicated individuals served at Cold Weather Shelter, we were able to assist 11 in becoming stably housed.
