Adolescent Housing Hub
There are 3 basic types of housing programs for young people in New Jersey AHH services are available to eligible homeless youth, youth at risk for homelessness, and youth aging out of the child welfare system, ages 18 – 21 years:
Supervised Transitional Living Program (STLP):
This provides supervised housing and other supports to 18 to 21 year old youth. Young people can stay at these programs for 18 to 24 months. In addition to housing, these programs also help with daily living skills, employment, education, and finding long term stable housing.
Transitional Living Program (TLP):
This provides semi-supervised housing and other supports to 18 to 21 year old youth. The length of time a young person can stay at one of these programs varies. These programs also help with daily living skills, employment, education, and finding long term stable housing.
Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH):
This provides housing with voluntary services to 18-21 year old youth. There are no limits on how long young people can stay in one of these programs. Youth in these programs have a lease or sublet, and pay some portion of their income toward rent (less than 30%).
In order to find out if a program has openings and to see if you qualify, you must contact the Adolescent Housing Hub via PerformCare (the state's contracted administrator) at 1-877-652-7624.
