Innovative Transition Age Foster Youth Program in Santa Clarita
Finally Family Homes connects vulnerable young adults (youth aging out of foster care) to a supportive trauma-informed community, stability, and dignity.
Through our innovative build-to-own Tiny House Ownership Program we are pioneering the way to ownership for college-aged young adults who’ve experienced foster care.
Our first-of-its-kind program quickly creates beautiful tiny housing while teaching job skills, creating ownership, and a sense of agency for those struggling with housing security. With this solid foundation, struggling young adults can break the cycle of poverty and live into their full potential.
Unlike other programs where millions of dollars end up with the organizations rather than the youth they serve, we provide financial stability, upward mobility, and a safety net through ownership.
Not only this but our tiny homes on wheels are an efficient, environmentally friendly workaround to the affordable housing crisis facing California and Santa Clarita in particular.
We recognize that the risks for transition-age foster youth homelessness are complex, so we also provide holistic supportive programs to bolster their success and help them to achieve their highest and best.

Transition Aged Foster Youth Program Preventing Homelessness
Homelessness has only gotten worse in California in recent years, including for youth aging out of foster care. We understand that the risk factors for homelessness among foster youth are complex. By nurturing personal development and offering a safety net of continued support, we mitigate the future risks of homelessness and human trafficking.
We believe in the potential of the youth we serve, not offering a hand up or a handout, but a hand to hold.
We come alongside foster youth to help them build to own their own tiny homes on wheels, giving them agency, job skills, and housing stability.
We recognize the importance of healthy relationships to foster youth success. So, we invite our young adults, who transitioned out of foster care, to belong in a community that’s invested in building lasting connections with them.
As a caring intermediate housing option, we offer host homes to stay at while building their tiny homes. We also provide life skills workshops and social-emotional development and support.

Caring Like Family After Foster Care
Just because you turn 18 doesn’t mean you stop needing the care and support of a family. In recent years young adults have been staying or moving back home after 18 at unprecedented rates. It’s a luxury foster youth who age out without a family don’t have.
So we step in to care like family. We are there to celebrate the good days – the holidays, birthdays, graduations, and the difficult ones too. When a young adult asked us for gas money while they were at the gas station, we stepped in to make sure they got home.
When they didn’t have a place to stay, we got them one.
