Established in November 2018 in partnership with Wind Youth Services, Possibilities provides a "Transition to Rapid Rehousing" model focusing on transition-age youth, 18-24, who come directly from homelessness. In this program, they receive intensive services including education and employment support, life skills, communication skills, conflict resolution, mental health and substance use disorder services, and much more. Upon completion of the initial six month phase in transitional housing, they will move on to community living with support for up to 18 months. The goal is to immediately link them with good paying jobs and the skills necessary to be self-sufficient adults, so that they are not our clients ten or twenty years down the road. This program serves 30 homeless youth each year, with 50% of the current group identifying as LGBTQ+.
