The Ontario One-Stop Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Center offers young adults between the ages of 16 to 25 a safe, accepting and comfortable place. Young adults come to identify the TAY Center as their own safe haven, where they can define and succeed in accomplishing their life goals. The young adult participants often have mental, emotional and/or substance abuse concerns. They come from foster care, group homes, the juvenile justice system, living on the streets, or simply from the community at large. They come to fulfill basic life needs such as a warm meal, a shower or a place to do laundry. After they drop in, they find additional supportive services, such as counseling, job training, housing referrals, GED study classes and other enrichment courses.
