GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

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.

Rights of Passage Homes

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.
