Transitional & Independent Living

We shepherd young adults from foster care to adulthood.

Wellroot’s TLP and ILP programs serve young adults between the ages of 18 and 21.

When a child in care turns 18, they have the option to stay in state care and receive supportive services that will help them make the challenging transition toward independence. These are courageous, brave youth who often do not have the support of their family and need our assistance establishing a path towards successful lives as adults. 

Our programs provide 24-hour support and community-based housing to each youth. Residents in the Transitional Living Program need greater levels of support and assistance, while residents in our Independent Living Program are nearing their full transition out of care. Wellroot offers ongoing life skills development, including financial literacy, tutoring, personal development, career development, and education about nutrition and health. As part of both programs, we guide residents through the process of earning their high school diploma or GED and offer assistance entering college or trade school.
