Transitions to Independence Program

The Transition to Independence Program (TIP) provides flexible and responsive housing options for youth aged 16-24 years who have Child Intervention Status. The program assists youth to transition to adulthood and independent living by focusing on each youth's unique needs and strengths. All referrals to TIP must come through the Youth HUB. The program is based on two primary philosophies; the Housing First philosophy which uses harm reduction strategies, as well as, intensive case management and objective-based visits to support the youth; and the Casework Practice Model, Signs of Safety, which focuses on child safety, permanency and preserving family connections.
