With the help of HCRS, Amy was placed in more stable home environment with a family that she had already established a relationship with during emergency respite care. With natural supports and the supports from HCRS; Amy has been able to establish a safe and more consistent relationship between herself and her biological family; she has been able to maintain gainful employment; and just last year was legally appointed to be her own guardian. Amy started working part-time at a grocery store and a department store. In 2010, Amy successfully completed a 3 month internship as a front desk clerk.

Transition Age Youth Services

Transition Age Youth ServicesOur Transition Age Youth program is designed to help youth between the ages of 16 and 22 who are struggling with significant emotional, behavioral, and substance use issues make a successful entry in the adult world through clinical assessment and treatment, employment supports, case management, and assistance in getting access to physical health care services.

This program includes our outpatient clinical program, our Youth in Transition Program (in Springfield only), and our JOBS program (available in Brattleboro and Springfield). These programs can help eligible youth prepare for the workplace and paid employment by assisting youth in preparing their resume, coaching them in how to prepare for and act in a job interview, and can teach core skills in how to succeed in a workplace environment. Case management services can also assist youth with education, housing, independent living skills, and connecting to other resources and supports in the community.
