Launch Success

Launching into Adulthood

Youth who have experienced foster care often lack an adequate support network as they navigate the difficult transition into adulthood. Treehouse recognizes a high school diploma as a critical step, not a destination. Enter Launch Success. The post-high school program provides young people who have experienced foster care with continued support until they achieve stable housing, a degree or credential, and a living wage.

Beginning with the class of 2017, Launch Success continues the partnership after graduation, providing ongoing access to goal setting, and the financial and material resources necessary for a successful launch into adulthood. Participants are automatically enrolled and assigned a Launch Success Coach in their area. Launch Success Coaches ensure each participant has a strong network of natural supports and service providers to achieve their goals.

Launch Success provides:

  • Coordination of services to secure housing
  • Funding for school fees or supplies, and job supplies
  • Assistance with other academic or career needs
