Under the Runaway, Homeless, and Missing Children Protection Act in (P.L. 108-96), Congress authorized the Transitional Living Program for Older Homeless Youth (TLP). TLP provides grants to community and faith-based non-profit and public organizations for longer-term residential supports (up to 18 months) to youth ages 16-21 in order to promote their successful transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency (National Network for Youth, Issue brief: Runaway and homeless youth act reauthorization [Available online at http://www.nn4youth.org/site/DocServer/NNYandVOAFinalUpdate.pdf?docID=304], 2007). This article describes a transitional living program in Long Island, New York designed to enable youth in a residential setting (ages 16-21) to develop and internalize independent living skills through the provision of shelter and support services which prepare them for living independently in the community.
