Connecting young adults exiting the child welfare system with housing and personalized supportive services that guide them as they transition to adulthood. Mile High United Way’s Bridging the Gap program works one-on-one with young people ages 18-24 who have exited the child welfare system. Independent Living Coaches work with program participants to provide critical housing resources with a 36-month Family Unification Program housing voucher and trauma-informed coaching. Coaches also help youth pursue employment, access education, learn about financial health, and set wellness goals. When participants have stable housing in place, youth can focus on other goals like furthering their education and building a strong support system for themselves and their children.
