The Transitional Housing Placement Plus (THP-Plus) Program provides affordable housing and comprehensive supportive services for up to 24 months to help former foster care and probation youth ages 18 to 24 make a successful transition from out-of-home placements to independent living. The program is administered by county departments of social services who either provide the services directly or contract for services with nonprofit THP-Plus providers.
If you are a nonprofit organization interested in becoming a THP-Plus provider, contact your county’s THP-Plus representative. If you are a youth, click here. If you have general questions about the statewide THP-Plus Program, you can contact John Burton Advocates for Youth at email@example.com or (415) 348-0011.
