Helping Kids in Times of Need


Clients of Gulf Coast’s Young Adult Transitional program attended the Broward County Transitional Independent Living Graduation “Build On Your Dreams” Ceremony. Clients of Gulf Coast’s Young Adult Transitional program attended the Broward County Transitional Independent Living Graduation “Build On Your Dreams” Ceremony. Gulf Coast has recently been awarded funding through Children Services Council of Broward County to prepare youth for independent futures.

As a current provider of Young Adult Transitional services over the last seven years in Broward County, Gulf Coast will expand its services and provide support to 40 youth ages 15-22 who are in out-of-home care including foster care, group homes, residential treatment, and relative and nonrelative placements.

In addition, the program will focus on working with youth who have special needs such as Serious Emotional Disturbance and Substance Abuse issues.

Services provided by a life coach will include life skills instruction, academic/ education support, employment and career skills, case management and counseling to assist youth aging out of the foster care system to make a successful transition to young adulthood.

Of our current program, Tania Hamilton, Clinical Administrator South Florida said “It was a proud moment for staff to see our young adults wearing cap and gowns as our graduates crossed the stage in a room full of peers and staff who helped guide them along the way. We are honored to have had the opportunity to celebrate their achievements!”
