Enhanced Horizons Transitional Living Program Application

Enhanced Horizons Transitional Living Program

Thank you for your interest in Enhanced Horizons (EH) Center for Advancement. The Enhanced Horizons transitional living program is designed to help teens and young adults move toward self-sufficiency and successful adult living (this includes single mothers with children).

By providing housing, transportation, and other services, each young adult is given an opportunity to develop and work on individualized independent living goals in a positive, safe, and supporting living environment.

How long is the program? The length of time in the Enhanced Horizons program varies depending on the individual needs of the young adult. To obtain maximum benefit from the program, we anticipate that most residents will stay anywhere from nine (9) to twenty-four (24) months.

What is expected of residents? All residents will be required to:
  • Participate in the development of a personal service plan that outlines the goals and objectives that they hope to accomplish while in the program.
  • Engage in a minimum of thirty-five (35) hours per week of productive activities, such as attending school, working a full-time or part-time job, community service, and/or independent living skills training.
  • Will be expected to actively seek employment and to work at least part-time. Residents will pay a small portion of their paycheck for living expenses and will be expected to save funds during their stay at Enhanced Horizons.
  • Follow program guidelines and expectations.

  • What does it take to succeed in the program? Participants must have a certain level of maturity and a strong willingness to work with program staff and other residents to accomplish their individual program goals and objectives.

    What are the eligibility requirements? To be eligible for the program, you:
  • Must be 18 to 24 years of age.
