Purpose of the YTHPRule 409
  • The purpose of this Part is to prescribe the
    standards for licensure as a Youth Transitional
    Housing Program and to describe how to apply for
    such a program license.
  • Procedures 409 gives direction to staff on
    how to license a YTHP
  • The licensing standards set forth in this Part
    are applicable to Youth Transitional Housing
    Programs as defined in the Children and Family
    Services Act 20 ILCS 505/4b and in the
    Emancipation of Minors Act 750 ILCS 30.
  • An individual or organization that operates a
    Transitional Housing Program only for youth ages
    18 and older is exempt from licensing under this
    Part.

7
Section P 409.10b) Purpose
  • Allows a licensed YTHP to operate in the same
    building with, and in conjunction with programs
    that serve persons 18 years of age and over
    provided that supervision requirements in Rule
    409 and these procedures are met and the sleeping
    quarters of YTHP youth are secure and separate
    from persons, other than staff, who are 21 years
    of age and older or wards of DCFS.

8
Youth in Transitional Housing ProgramPurpose
  • YTHP was created to enable providers already
    serving homeless and/or foster care youth in a
    facility to be able to (affordably) also house
    partially emancipated homeless youth 16 and 17
    years old.
  • Partial emancipation process gives these youth
    the ability to consent to a YTHP.

9
PURPOSE CONTINUED
  • Results in a longer-term more stable living
    arrangement than emergency shelters permit.
  • Though YTHPs are a distinct program, it is not
    intended to be physically separated from other
    programs or all other youth and adults
  • There are age restrictions for the sleeping
    areas.

10
Important DefinitionsP 409.20
  • Facility means the building in which the YTHP
    and/or other programs operate.
  • Housing means the secure area in which beds of
    non-ward youth ages 16-20 are located.

11
Important Definitions cont
  • Homeless youth or homeless minor means a
    partially emancipated youth 16 or 17 years of age
    who may be admitted to the YTHP, but may remain
    in the program until 18 years of age. Youth in
    the guardianship of DCFS are not eligible for
    this program. The minor child of a resident may
    be admitted to the YTHP with his or her parent.
  • Resident means youth admitted into the YTHP
    and/or other individuals living in the same
    facility.

12
Section P409.220f) Supervision of Residents
  • Document how a facility that also operates a
    homeless adult program provides separate sleeping
    quarters for YTHP youth and their children to
    prevent access to youth sleeping quarters by
    others served in the building who are 21 years of
    age and over (examples may include separate
    floors, separate wings of a building, walls with
    operable and secure doors).

13
Section P409.220g) Supervision of Residents
  • Verify that the sleeping quarters of the YTHP
    youth cannot be accessed by persons 21 and over.
    When YTHP youth are commingling with adults
    served in the same building (e.g. dining areas,
    recreational areas, workshops, classes,
    trainings), describe how staff will continue to
    supervise the YTHP youth.

14
Section P409.220 (h) Supervision of Residents
  • Observe that when the YTHP operates within a
    licensed facility, the sleeping quarters of the
    YTHP youth is separate from residents who are
    under the guardianship of the Department and
    residing in the licensed facility.
  • Document on the floor plans how these sleeping
    areas are separate.

15
Section P409.230a) Physical Facilities
  • Discuss that while programs in the same
    building, other than the YTHP, may house persons
    18 years of age and over, no one 21 years of age
    or older, except staff, is permitted in the
    sleeping area of the YTHP.

16
Facility Capacity- P 409.240
  • The capacity is determined by several factors,
    but shall not exceed 24 residents for the first
    year of operation
  • Children of youth housed in the YTHP shall be
    counted in the capacity.

17
Section 409.270i) Admission Criteria
  • Any youth, aged 18 years old up to 21 years
    old, who is housed in the facility, where the
    YTHP is located, shall meet the admission
    criteria required for homeless youth
    participating in the YTHP and shall have
    completed a comparable screening and assessment.

18
Admission Criteria
  • This means that non-YTHP youth should enter the
    facility on their own volition, should not pose a
    serious threat to themselves or others, and
    should not have a contagious disease.
  • Non-YTHP youth would not have to present
    documentation of partial emancipation, but should
    go through a comparable screening and
    assessment.

19
Section 409.290 Length of Stay
  • From Rule Homeless youth can remain in the
    transitional living program (YTHP) up to
    attaining the age of 18 years. From 18 years of
    age and up to 21 years of age, the person can
    participate in another program within the
    facility, if available.
  • From Procedures Discuss that there is no
    maximum number of days a youth may remain in a
    YTHP, as long as he or she is under the age of
    18.

20
Length of Stay
  • Clarification Youth who turn 18 may continue to
    stay in the facility and continue to share
    sleeping quarters and all programming with YTHP
    youth. However, they must be designated as being
    in another program in the facility. Youth who
    turn 21 also may continue to live in the facility
    and share programming with YTHP youth as long as
    they have separate sleeping quarters and are
    designated as being in another program.

21
In summary
  • These sections of the procedures show that YTHPs
    can exist within a facility that houses and
    provides services to youth and adults 18 years of
    age and older, including wards.
  • Sleeping quarters of YTHP youth are restricted to
    youth through age 20 who are not wards of the
    state.

22
Also.
  • YTHP youth and other youth and adults over 18
    years old (including wards) may utilize common
    spaces together.
  • Other youth and adults residing or participating
    in the same facility with YTHP youth should meet
    similar criteria and complete a comparable
    screening and assessment.

23
And Finally
  • YTHP youth who are 18 and older may continue to
    participate and/or reside in other programs in
    the facility.

24
Who Can Apply for YTHP licensure?
  • Licensed Facilities Group Homes, Youth
    Emergency Shelters, and Child Care Institutions
  • Facilities, Agencies, and Organizations who are
