TRAIL

Pathway Family Services’ independent living program is aptly named TRAIL, Teens Reaching Adult Independent Living. There are times when a youth is 17 years old and they have nowhere to go. Returning home or living in family foster care is not an option. For youth who don’t have the support of a safe family, finding their way in the world can be a difficult challenge, especially for those aging out of foster care.  The TRAIL program provides youth aged 17-22 the opportunity to learn essential life skills and practice living independently while still having the support and guidance of caring staff.

Our TRAIL youth live in fully furnished and equipped residences. They are provided a supportive learning environment to develop home maintenance and self-sufficiency skills, such as cooking and cleaning, as well as getting along with their next door neighbor. The site has 14 residences, Independent Living Specialists available 24/7, and licensed therapists to provide behavioral health services on site, including crisis services to youth in placement. Staff help provide transitional living and community integration program components while managing each youth’s individualized client-centered service plan.
