Our Program

Our mission is to provide services for young adults 18-21 who are homeless. Our goals are to provide them with safe housing; to stabilize employment, build skills, to connect them with ongoing resources and support within the community; to help them become self-sufficient so that they can start their lives and break the cycle of homelessness and dependency.

Our program offers referral services for housing assistance, supporting community connections, life skill workshops, job training skills and connections to higher education. The Milestone program is a substance free environment. Alcohol, tobacco, smoking (including e-cigarettes) are not allowed on the premises. Illegal drugs are prohibited. All participants in the Milestone Transitional Living Program are subject to random drug testing.


Participants are expected to meet monthly goals outlined in Milestone Agreements.

To be successful participants need to:

  • Complete “Milestones” by participating in activities and accomplishing goals
  • Participate in Milestone activities and stay in contact with their mentor
  • Demonstrate that they can pay program fees (program fees start at $200 a month for the first three months and fees will continue to increase by $50 every three months.
  • Follow the non-negotiable terms (no drugs or alcohol, no violence, no weapons or explosives, no pets, no overnight guests, no criminal activity, no violating the policies and agreements).
  • Follow the Respect Code and honor it. There will be consequences for not treating each other with respect, resolving disputes, and taking care of the day-to-day business of living with roommates.
  • Be responsible for their personal care, money management, safety, and cooperation with each other and your community supporters.
  • Become independent: get the skills, positive friendships, and income they will need to live on their own.

Funds paid for program fees will be saved for participant’s time of transition from the program. Any funds left in this savings plan will be paid to help with their moving on to independence.

Rotary Club of Salt Lake & Salt Lake County Youth Services Present Milestone Transitional Living Program for Young Adults Experiencing Homelessness

The Salt Lake City Rotary Club is proud to announce the launch of its fundraising efforts to support the expansion of the Salt Lake County Youth Services Milestone Transitional Living Program (Milestone TLP) for young adults experiencing homelessness. The Milestone TLP provides crucial housing and support services for young adults 18 to 21 who have aged out of the foster care system or are at risk of homelessness. 

The Milestone TLP is the only program of its kind in Salt Lake County and is crucial to address the increase in the youth homeless population. The Milestone TLP has been operating since 2012 and has served over 250 young adults. In 2022, 86% of the young adults that exited the Milestone TLP were successfully defined as housed and were employed and/or in school.
