Transitional Living Program (TLP)

TLP is a federal program providing semi-supervised independent living for homeless and runaway youth. Living in groups of apartments with housemates in a semi-staffed setting, the youth are given appropriate freedom and responsibility in order to prepare them for independence

The Transitional Living Program (TLP) consists of several residential sites located throughout Lehigh and Northampton Counties.  Youth reside in apartments with other youth of like age and experience and are under the supervision of a live-in Resident Advisor.  All the sites are located in residential neighborhoods within the community.



Anyone experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness in the Lehigh Valley may contact Coordinated Entry for a single, streamlined assessment and referral process for housing and related services from a designated coordinated Entry Specialist.


Call: 211

Coordinated Entry Hours: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

NOTE:  2-1-1 is a 24 hour service, but Coordinated Entry is only available as specified above.  After hours, a live operator will still field the call and provide a list of referral, but the staff is not trained to conduct the VI-SPDAT assessment.
