Supervised Transitional Living Program

In a 12-bed group home setting, this program provides educational and vocational counseling for abandoned and vulnerable youths, ages 16-21, regardless of geographic origin for up to 18 months.

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).
