Transition Aged Youth (TAY) Toolkit: More Than a Roof Over Their Heads

  • n recent years, young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 have been recognized as comprising a distinct demographic group with age-specific needs that set them apart from adolescents on the one hand, and the general adult population on the other. In terms of social services, young adults straddle the youth and adult service worlds, fitting fully in neither, yet requiring support from both to achieve adult independence. Accessing appropriate housing for individuals in this age group presents a unique set of challenges. Shelter and housing providers taking in young adults can best serve them only when staff orientation and programming is informed by the particular needs of the age group. This document was created as a resource for shelter and housing providers, and also for advocates, policy makers and funders to enumerate those specific concerns impacting the housing of transition age young adults — their developmental levels, skill sets, vulnerabilities, proclivities, etc. — so that these individuals can receive the support services they need to progress successfully to independent adulthood.

A Count of Homeless Youth in New York City

  • In July of 2007 Empire State Coalition surveyed over 1,000 youth who were either homeless or at-risk for homelessness. The surveys were done at youth programs, at runaway shelters and transitional living programs, at adult homeless programs, on the street, and at other miscellaneous sites. The survey consisted of 55 questions including questions about age, reasons for homelessness, sexual orientation, history of foster care, educational attainment, current living situation and age when they first began living away from their parent/guardian. Surveys were done by trained volunteers who had received certification to do research on human subjects by the Institutional Review Board of Columbia University, the same Board that approved the study. The project research team, Dr. Darrick Hamilton, Milano Graduate Center of the New School for Social Research, Dr. Lance Freeman, Columbia University, Margo Hirsch and Jim Bolas, both of Empire State Coalition collected and analyzed the data.
