Serving Transition Aged Youth (TAY) LGBTQ, Foster, and Homeless Youth

Supporting Community Connections, or SCC, is a grant funded program that was developed based on the County of Sacramento identifying the need for prevention and early intervention services for transition age youth (ages 12-25).

SCC offers educational groups on the Children’s Receiving Home campus and in the community that teach youth how to use resources to promote health and well-being. Individual case management and peer support is also provided by SCC staff to both TAY in the community and on campus as needed to facilitate linkages, connecting homeless and runaway youth with community resources and emergency supplies. Outreach to TAY is conducted through multiple events throughout the year including Pride, Suicide Prevention Walks, and local wellness fairs.

Groups include:

  • SuicideTALK curriculum for suicide prevention open to TAY in the community and on campus, as well as to staff and community partners
  • Life Skills Groups for adolescent foster youth on campus
  • Adolescent Social Skills and Self Advocacy groups open to adolescent foster youth on campus
  • My Life, My Choice curriculum for at risk adolescent foster youth on campus
  • LGBTQ Teen Support group which is open to TAY in the community and on campus
  • Seeking Safety Evidence Based Practice curriculum for trauma and substance use which is open to adolescent foster youth on campus

The overall goal for SCC is to provide these resources to help youth feel healthy, empowered and connected. For more information or to access our services, please contact us at SCC@CRHKids.org, at (916) 616-2397 or find us on Facebook.
