What We Do
To support young adults impacted by the foster care system and at risk youth by providing safe, stable and affordable housing, as well as education and support services, as they transition to independent living.
Teaching Youth the Keys to Success
The Twin Falls Optimist Youth House (TFOYH) Transitional Living Program provides safe housing, supportive case management services, life skills training, educational and employment guidance and counseling for young adults that have been impacted by the foster care system.
Our goal is to help the youth achieve self-sufficiency, financial independence and long-term housing stability. Once enrolled in the TFOYH program, residents work with a case manager to complete an Independent Living Plan (ILP). The ILP helps identify individual goals including life skills, employment, education and permanent housing.
