THP Plus A project of the JOHN BURTON FOUNDATION with the goal of reducing homelessness among
current and former foster youth in California by improving access to safe, affordable
and supportive housing.
The THP-Plus Statewide Implementation Project works to improve access to two vital
programs in California:
THP+FC, which provides supportive housing to youth age 18 to 21 who are in foster
care; THP-Plus, which provides 24 months of supportive housing to former foster youth, age
18 to 24.
Both programs provide wide range of supportive services, including job training, educational
support, and counseling. The THP-Plus Statewide Implementation Project seeks to expand
access to both programs throughout the state through training, technical assistance,
