GrandSlam is a structured transitional living program and supported apartments providing transitional living assistance for homeless female youth ages 16-20. The primary goal of the program is the development of an independent living plan. Young ladies stay 6-18 months in a structured group home setting and/or up to one year in a supported apartment where they receive counseling, life and social skills training, and employment and education assistance.
GrandSlam residents will have the opportunity to:
- Learn life and social skills training
- Receive employment and education assistance
- Experience productive independent living
Residents participate in community activities and have the opportunity to support each other and learn that caring about others and themselves is part of the foundation for a positive future. As new residents enter the program, they benefit from the shared experiences from the other residents on education, employment, and goal setting. As residents graduate from the program, Center For Family Services assists in providing guidance on obtaining housing.
