Designed to complement Fred Finch housing programs, the transition programs provide vocational and educational connections, mental health support, and linkage to other community supports. Many of the youth accessing these services are former foster children, who bring with them histories of abuse, neglect, and complex emotional and physical health needs. With the development of the school-linked wellness center on site at Fred Finch’s main Oakland campus, we will provide necessary health and dental services as a component of assisting these youth in achieving stability and independence.
