Help Transition to Responsible Adulthood
Transitional homes for Community, Discipleship and Life Skills
As young orphans age out of government placement centers or foster care when they turn eighteen, they are at risk of being socially isolated and even homeless because they lack the continuous support needed in their transition to successful adulthood. Additionally, many of them lack the necessary financial resources, skills and job opportunities to manage on their own. This reality puts these young people at risk for human trafficking and other forms of exploitation. Pathway to Joy is now in the planning and development phase for a new ministry program called The Success for Life Institute (SFLI). This program will equip these young adults with all the necessary competencies and skills needed to successfully and effectively transition to responsible adulthood.
This two-year program will give each resident a safe and stable place to call home. It will also give residents the opportunity to focus wholeheartedly on continued education, personal development, life skills acquisition, and real-world, hands-on training and experience in a field of their choice. In the context of a positive community of other young adults and mentors, these young people will learn to thrive, heal, and build resourceful, joy-filled, and Christ-centered lives.
