For many of our young people, the Rights of Passage (ROP) Program is the next step beyond Crisis Care for young men and women on their journey to independent living. While at ROP young people work to develop the skills and knowledge to live independently and make the transition to adulthood.
Each young person co-creates an individual case plan in which he or she identifies specific goals to help them in securing employment advancing their education, and ultimately transitioning into positive housing with sustainable income. Resident Advisors provide support to ensure that youth are on track to goals. The program’s mandatory savings plan enables youth to save up for the time they move on to permanent housing.
Our Rights of Passage homes opened in Asbury Park in January of 2018 and in November of 2019 in partnership with Interfaith Council of Asbury Park. One home provides residential care and support services for 5 young men and the other home serves 5 young women.
