TN Supportive Housing for Youth in Transition
In FWB’s Extension of Foster Care Program, we provide a continuum of housing and training opportunities through supervised housing, case management, tutoring services, transportation, life skills training/classes, and assistance with mental and physical health needs.
Brumit Center is a supervised independent living program for youth in extension of foster care services on the campus of Holston United Methodist Home for Children. Youth in this program are required to have a least part time employment and be enrolled in an educational program (high school, post- secondary, or trade school). Brumit Center youth may attend our on-campus school, River Academy, where students have the opportunity to earn a diploma through a traditional program, credit recovery, or preparing for and passing the HiSet. In addition to having round the clock, live-in staff, each youth at Brumit is assigned a Child and Family Specialist to provide counseling and case management services. An Independent Living Coordinator is also assigned to each youth that assists them in enrolling in a post-secondary program, securing a driver’s license, exploring career interests, obtaining employment, and locating housing after completing extension of foster care services.
Omni Visions has two homes in Nashville, TN for males aging out of custody and wanting to receive extension of foster care services. We support 18–21-year-olds transitioning out of foster care by providing housing, food stipend and monthly allowance. We assign a Resource Coordinator that provides educational support, employment coaching, and assists in skill building so they can move beyond the challenges they are facing and thrive.
The Youth LINC Program provides Specialized Independent Living support services for youth, ages 18-22nd birthday, who are homeless, runaway, or at risk of becoming homeless. Each youth will partner with Youth Advocates to complete an assessment of independent living skills as well as a review of educational, employment, and counseling needs. Residential Transitional Living Services are provided on an average of 6-8 months but can be extended up to 18 months on a case-by-case basis.
