Transition Case Management/Coaching

TRAC provides Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) AfterCare / Transition Case Management and Financial Services to foster youth under a contract with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS). Life Skills Coaches work with youth on assessment, transition planning, referrals to appropriate resources, and assistance with housing and employment, offering practical application of the six core elements for PAL Life Skills Training. TRAC serves youth in either pre-transition or post-transition services as appropriate based on their referral. TRAC also ensures that youth in post-transition services are assessed and served on either a crisis intervention or planned intervention plan. For youth in crisis intervention, TRAC also assesses and coordinates services for those in persistent crisis.

TRAC’s PAL Financial Support Services include the disbursement of emergency living expenses for youth who meet TDFPS guidelines. In addition, youth may access other local programs which provide services at little to no charge, including primary health care, technology education, legal services, food assistance and long-term housing.

  • Individual transition planning
  • Housing assistance
  • Medicaid registration
