Transition Centers

Transition centers are one-stop places to serve the many needs of older youth, homeless youth, and other at-risk youth, ages 15½ to 25.

The centers serve as central locations for services such as Preparation for Adult Living (PAL), job readiness, job search help, exploring job options, help with enrolling in college, help with housing, and mentoring. Some centers may link with community agencies to provide many other services such as substance abuse, mental health counseling, and leadership training.

These centers are funded and supported by a partnership between DFPS and their providers, and the Texas Workforce Commission.
