To help young adults, ages 17-24, better prepare for self-sufficient lives after foster care, we opened the Summit Trail Apartment Community to provide supervised living for those who are homeless, parenting, leaving juvenile justice and/or mental health systems. This supportive housing community helps young adults learn the skills necessary for productive adulthood in a supervised environment.

 

Residents are paired with a Life Coach who use the Transition to Independence Model to focus on:

  • Employment & Career
  • Educational Opportunities
  • Living Situations
  • Personal Effectiveness & Well-Being
  • Community Life Functioning

 

The Transition to Independence Model Provides the following methods:

  • Engage through Person-Centered Approach
  • Tailor Services & Support to be Accessible, Coordinated, Developmentally Appropriate & Built on Strengths
  • Acknowledge Personal Choice
  • Ensure a Safety Net of Support
  • Enhance Competencies to Assist in Self-Sufficiency

 

 

 

As a part of CHRIS 180’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, Summit Trail apartments are EarthCraft Multifamily Certified buildings.

Two years after leaving Summit Trail, 97% of our young adults were safely housed and 90% were employed and/or in school.
