Angel Reach’s Transitional Living Program offers young adults who have aged out of foster care a safe, temporary residence as they transition into society. Each year 200-300 youth age out of foster care in the greater Houston area. The majority of these young people lack the necessary life skills to make the next steps to becoming productive adults.

Permanent Supportive Housing
A proven solution to homelessness for the most vulnerable chronically homeless people is Permanent Supportive Housing or PSH. This program pairs affordable housing assistance, case management, and supportive services to promote independent living and tenancy skills while connecting people with community-based health care, treatment, and employment services. In addition to ending homelessness and increasing a client’s housing stability, permanent supportive housing has been shown to improve health and well-being while also providing a cost-effective solution to lower public costs associated with the use of crisis services such as shelters, hospitals, jails, and prisons.
