Onward Transitions employs an autonomous model for emerging adults in the final stages of learning to live on their own by supporting actual, sustainable independent living and autonomy. Participants (members) are between the ages 18-29 and most are between 19-23. We help families locate apartments in the neighborhood of their choice in Portland, Maine. Member challenges include mild to moderate anxiety, depression and/or executive functioning challenges. We practice harm-reduction so aren't a good fit for substance abusers. Everyone has their own schedule. Living independently, members are working on the goals they have established with their therapist. Breakfast through dinner the Pine House has a steady flow of activity as members come for therapy, appointments, groups, meal prep, 2 meals 6 days a week, and drop-ins. Therapists provide weekly individual, family and group therapy. Multiple weekly group sessions on budgeting, nutrition, mindfulness, social millennial, cooking and studying. Friday night is dinner out with staff. Saturdays bring apartment consultations, and special weekend activities. Tuition includes all the above. Onward Transitions services are contracted quarterly. Most members are with us for 6-12 months. Neighbors is offered to qualified Pine House members as they transition beyond full-service membership at the Pine House. Having established residency in Portland, Maine and successfully engaged in school, community and/or work, members no longer need the full clinical and coaching services, meals and drop-in advantages of the Pine House.
