Level III - Transition to Adulthood, Ages 18 to 22

Coordination of care is vital during the transition to adulthood. This is an opportunity to reassess each member’s level of functioning and goals to be attained as adults. At Level III, we triage members and families to determine educational needs, supportive employment, housing, ongoing care/case management and other services as indicated.

The services provided with this age group mirror that of Level II with a greater emphasis on care/case management and educational, housing and employment services. SB&H also facilitates transitional aged youth (TAY) group counseling tailored to be specific to its ASD members. 

During this transition, members may want to explore guardianship including involvement in health care decisions. The evidence-based approach we utilize is The Aspire model, which helps participants create deeper social connections and develop independence.

Services at Level III may include Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), 24-hour In-Home Crisis Services, and Crisis Recovery Unit with a full array of services. A housing specialist will also assist in finding an appropriate housing situation to ensure quality of life and safety concerns.
