Step Up Transitional Housing

Our Step Up Transitional Housing for Young adults, ages 18-24, is dorm-style living. Two units allow five residents in each unit. Each unit has a 3/4 bath, shared living spaces, and a shared kitchenette. 

Every resident must sign a Step Up Program Participant Agreement that specifically states expectations for a healthy living environment for all involved.  

Weekly program fees equal 30% of a resident’s gross income. Half of that pays for tuition and the other half goes into a savings account that the resident will receive in cash when they move out.  

Residents can stay for up to 24 months. MYC staff make weekly room inspections, surprise visits, and inspections and work with local schools to ensure seniors are on track for graduation and have post-secondary plans in place. 

All young adults residing in the transitional units will have full access to our current programming, including: 

  • Case Management Services: Provides stability to youth experiencing homelessness through a regional network of support.  
  • Community Navigation Services: Includes medical, mental health, and dental care coordination and transportation, and assistance in obtaining state-funded healthcare benefits. 
  • Food Security Services: Includes free meals on weeknights, assistance in obtaining food benefits, and transportation to local food pantries. 
  • Workforce Development: See program information for COAST.
