Tennessee Transitional Living Program Information through September 2013

Founded in 1999 with a grant from The Day Foundation, the Transitional Living Program is still supported through private donations including continuing support from The Day Foundation, the employees of Youth Villages (through the Our Family Campaign), and grants from other generous supporters. In 2007, the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services partnered with Youth Villages and the Day Foundation to reach more youth across the state; in 2013 that partnership was expanded so that every youth aging out of state custody could potentially be served.
