The Supervised Transitional Living Program (STLP) was established in 2001 by Ocean’s Harbor House to meet the needs of older youth, ages 16-21. In the past, these youth were too old for traditional shelter services, yet they still required supervised housing and/or everyday life skills in order to become self-sufficient, independent adults.
Participants are offered secure and stable living conditions for up to 18 months. While staying within the STLP, these youth receive life skill counseling and training including budget/financial management, menu planning, nutrition and food preparation, use and management of credit, consumer education, housekeeping, personal hygiene, safety instruction, planning for leisure/social activities and methods of obtaining vital documents (social security card, birth certificate, citizenship application, working papers, etc).
