Transitional Living Program
Enhanced Horizons, a 20-building, college-style campus located five miles west of Ingram, houses a transitional living program for aged-out foster youth, providing residence, guidance and education for up to 32 young adults at a time.
To gain admission, an applicant must present a Personal Plan showing how he or she plans to become independent within two years. The resident “pays” rent through productive involvement, including gainful employment, enrollment in higher education, job training, life skills counseling, and community service.
Throughout our history, we have been aware of a profound gap in the foster care system. Upon high school graduation, the state of Texas declares foster youth to be adults. They must suddenly live without a support system – one that normal young adults can expect from family during this time of transition.
