Touchstone Village

Touchstone Village is a Transitional Living program that has been developed out of a community need. According to the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients, 12% of the homeless population was 17-24 years old. Within three years of aging out of the foster care system, the Annie Casey Foundation reports that 37% will be incarcerated and 50% will be homeless at some point, becoming our new homeless and “disconnected” population.

Touchstone Village provides Transitional Living services to young adults ages 18-21 who are in extended foster care or may be homeless. Many of the residents have been in the foster care system and/or delinquency system and are without the resources needed to live independently in the community.

Touchstone Village provides each resident with:

  • Rental of an individual apartment for a nominal fee
  • Life skills training
  • Academic monitoring and support
  • Career development training
  • Mental health therapy and psychiatric services

Touchstone residents will establish personal goals and learn to build healthy, trusting relationships. Touchstone Village’s goal is to assist residents by restoring hope and preparing them for a new beginning on the rest of their lives.
