Healing and a space to grow
On-campus Transitional Living
Myriam Hall Transitional Living Program
Vista Maria’s Transitions Program is a Supervised Independent Living program that operates in a group home setting on campus. Transitions serves adolescents between the ages of 16–19 in Myriam Hall, a secure, encouraging, supportive and age-appropriate environment with the goal to live independently. We place an emphasis on the practical application of self-management and functional independence.
For young people with little or no functioning support system outside of the child welfare or juvenile justice system, and in circumstances when returning home or family reunification is not an option, Transitions is the in-between step – the passage from residential treatment to the community. We help adolescents successfully reintegrate into community independence.
Shepherd Hall Transitional Living Program
Vista Maria created the Shepherd Hall Transitional Living Program to address the specific needs of young adults who have aged out of the foster care system or are otherwise homeless. Utilizing a combination of wrap-around support strategies including employment referrals, aftercare services, and access to a staff therapist, Shepherd Hall offers a safe place for young adults ages 18-24 to live, learn and make the transition to independent adulthood.
Participants in the program actively practice their independent living skills, complete their education, work to secure and maintain employment, and improve their relational competencies to achieve the goal of reentering their communities as independent, self-sustaining adults.
