Transitional Living Services offered through Dana’s House, Inc. will serve teens ages 17 through 21 that are on the path to aging out of care without a support system in place.  With the guidance of a life coach, and in collaboration with Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas, Arkansas County Adult Education, and the Dewitt School District invaluable life and educational skills as well as a sense of independence will be instilled that is often misplaced as youth are moved from home to home within the foster care system.   The following services will be offered to youth that participate in transitional living services:  assessment and transitional plan development and review, life skills coaching, semi-supervised living, mentoring, educational support, career/job guidance, health care life skills, housing life skills, home management, interpersonal/social skills, money management skills, parenting skills, driving skills, crisis intervention, mental health services, emergency cash assistance, and weekly Bible study.  Without fundamental life skills and solid forever relationships with adult mentors the likelihood of success in life for foster youth is slim.  Transitional Living Services offered through Dana’s House, Inc. will serve to give foster youth the hand up they need to avoid becoming a negative statistic.
