Housing Plans

Transitional Living Program

Services in Southwest Colorado offered through the Transitional Living Program (TLP) are designed to help young people who are struggling with housing insecurity, reach their goals, and prevent youth from being unhoused. The TLP provides homeless youth with stable living accommodations for up to 18 months. The TLP provides services to help young people develop skills necessary to move to independence and life as healthy, productive adults. Oak Tree Youth Resources and our TLP provide services to help young people seek housing, apply for TLP deposit support, and rental assistance, job preparation and attainment, develop skills necessary to move towards independence, and live as healthy, productive, self-sufficient adults. Oak Tree Youth Resources can work together with youth to locate living accommodations, as housing stability can be pivotal in a young persons mental health. This is case by case, up to 12 months, as funding is available. Please text or call us with any questions. 970-335-9667.
