Our young adult vocational programs focus on personal employment, education and career exploration as individuals transition to independence. Our young adult residential services provide a structured environment focusing on independent living skills.
The Transition Age Youth (TAY) programs help young adults with mental health concerns reach their goals. Both programs support young adults as they transition to independence and adulthood. Both programs focus on identifying and taking action steps toward individualized employment, education, and career exploration goals. Both programs are funded through the state of Maryland Public Behavioral Health System (PBHS) and the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS), with no direct cost to you.
Please see our FAQ for more information and questions regarding the programs.
CTP is a Supported Employment team that specializes in helping graduating high school students prepare for life after high school. Employment support services focus on finding a job that meets their interests and skills as well as navigating the often daunting switch to accessing adult mental health services as they leave the high school support network.
CAPS is a Supported Employment team that works with young adults in their late teens or 20’s as they explore career options and start having their first few work experiences. PRP services can also be provided for individuals who have Medicaid and a qualifying mental health diagnosis.
We provide TAY-specific intensive residential services for individuals between 18 and 25 with the goal of independent living by the time they’re aging out of our program. If that goal isn’t met we have general level residential services and other residential options to refer to when necessary. Individuals must be passionate about engaging daily with staff to progress toward consumer-identified goals as long as they’re in the program, and can expect daily interactions with staff.
The Supported Living team provides PRP services to young adults who may not be immediately interested in working but know that they need some help in pursuing goals or accessing resources in the community. Individuals must be 18, eligible for medicaid and have a qualifying mental health diagnosis.
As it relates to young adults seeking growth, independence and work experience, we provide assistance and support in the following areas:
