Sometimes youth relocate and do not live in their county of origin (where they exited from care). Youth may choose to relocate for various reasons, including to attend college, for a job, for safety reasons, or to live in a community where they may have family or social ties.
Each county with a THP-Plus program receives an annual THP-Plus Realignment Allocation that must be spent on THP-Plus services. THP-Plus is a statewide program, so counties can use this funding to serve youth in their THP-Plus programs regardless of their county of origin.
For provider, county and youth reference, below is the list of counties with THP-Plus programs, and whether or not they allow out-of-county youth in their programs.
