What We Do

Teaching Youth the Keys to Success

The Twin Falls Optimist Youth House (TFOYH) 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, participants 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.

Getting Onto a Career Path

Participants who are unemployed or interested in finding a different job will meet with an employment specialist that assists with resume building, job searches, interview preparation and goal setting. Required activities include employment, GED/high school/college classes, job searching, and life skills classes.
