Partnering with Transition Aged Foster Youth to build tiny homes in Santa Clarita - Finally Family Homes tiny house on wheels with red door and brown siding

Innovative Transition Age Foster Youth Program in Santa Clarita

One of the biggest needs for transition-age foster youth is housing. In Santa Clarita, affordable housing is especially hard to come by. So we partner with transition age foster youth to help them build to own tiny homes on wheels.

This innovative program creates affordable housing quickly, while teaching job skills, and creating ownership for those who struggle with housing security.

We recognize that the risks for transition age foster youth homelessness are complex so we provide other supportive programs to bolster their success.

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.

Serving Santa Clarita and Surrounding Areas

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.

Success After Foster Care

Impact Generations

By investing in transition age foster youth, your gift not only changes the trajectory of a youth in need but creates ripple effects – making a better future for their children and empowering them to give back to the community.
Finally Family Homes is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
