“I thank the California Department of Housing and Community Development (Department) for its effort to ensure struggling young adults in the Inland Empire find a home,” said Senator Ochoa Bogh, member of the Senate Housing Committee. “Our youth are our future. I am proud the state is prioritizing housing stability and helping former foster care, and probation system youth find a home, hopefully leading to their ultimate future success.”
The purpose of the THP is to promote housing stability for young adults, ages 18 up to 25, by assisting them in securing and maintaining housing, with priority given to young adults formerly in the foster care or probation systems.
