Tranquility House is a supervised transitional living program (STLP) that provides safe and supportive housing to young ladies age 16-20 with the goal of building the foundation for independent living. The program offers a community-based alternative for older female youth needing preparation for independent living. The youth live in a supportive home and receive assistance in completing their education and working toward their vocational goals. The program is most suited for adolescents who can be reasonably expected to reach future independent living with a minimum IQ of 80 and are willing to commit to case management; earn increments of unsupervised passes through a level system; counseling; educational or vocational training; and employment or volunteer work to enhance their ability to be self-sufficient.
The length of stay is 6-18 months in a home-like setting where young ladies live on their own with guidance from caring and supportive staff. Successful completion of the program prepares residents for independent living and through the program residents receive assistance with obtaining their own housing.
