We are excited that the building of our first transition home is underway. This home has been funded by a local donor and will be located next to our existing Westlake home. The first group of teens who are ‘ageing out’ of care will be housed in our transition home as it’s important to us that we are able to support these young people after they reach 18 years of age. Even though they’re adults, these individuals still need a safety net and may require assistance through the challenges that they face at this stage of their lives – finding employment, supporting themselves and living independently. The building of this transition home should be completed by mid-2018.
