Transitional Apartments & Parenting Center (TAPC)

The TAPC is a 24-unit apartment and parenting center, providing long-term transitional housing and non-residential services for pregnant and parenting young women, ages 16-21 (including their dependent infants and toddlers). For a quarter of a century, TAPC youth have benefited from supportive housing, case management, parenting and living skills classes, pregnancy preventive, employment readiness and assistance with maintaining school enrollment. The TAPC offers a caring home-like environment where young women receive 24-hour supervision, crisis intervention, advocacy and counseling, assistance with medical appointments, recreation, socialization and licensed daycare services. The combination of these daily supports and critical interventions create a comprehensive approach that breaks the cycle of poverty and homelessness for these young families.
