THE FUTUREBOUND TRADITIONAL HOUSING PROGRAM (FTHP)

The FutureBound Traditional Housing Program (FTHP) provides 12 -18 months of housing and support services to youth, ages 18 to 24, who have aged out of public child welfare and juvenile justice systems and/or youth who find themselves homeless or unstably housed.

FTHP meets a critical need in the community. Young adults transitioning out of the foster care system are especially affected by the instability that accompanies long periods of out-of-home placement during childhood and adolescence, placing them at an elevated risk for homelessness and dependency on public assistance. Nationally, 27% of the homeless youth spent time in foster care.
