ABOUT  POSITIVE  TRANSITIONS  
ABOUT  
About  4  in  10  California  residents  are  living  at,  near,  or  below  the  poverty  line.  There  are  an  estimated  84,000  homeless  
minors  and  young  adults  in  California,  many  of  them  are  a  part  of  the  240,000  youth  that  exit  the  United  States  foster  care  
system  annually.  The  Bay  Area  hosts  the  second  largest  population  of  homeless  youth  and  young  adults  in  California,  
numbering  approximately  15,000.    
The  effects  of  poverty  and  the  stress  associated  with  it  extends  to  later  life  and  contributes  to  an  increased  risk  for  
dropping  out  of  school,  poor  adult  health,  underemployment,  and  low  income.    
Positive  Transitions  seeks  to  meet  the  Bay  Area  youth  population’s  most  basic  needs  for  food,  shelter,  and  support.  
Ultimately  reducing  homelessness,  poverty,  and  their  negative  effects  by  increasing  life  long  success  through  education,  
employment,  and  empowerment.    
Positive  Transitions  serves  impoverished  youth  ages  3-­18  and  their  caregivers,  homeless  youth  ages  15-­24,  and  
emancipated  foster  youth  ages  18-­24  in  the  San  Francisco  East  Bay  communities.  We  serve  this  target  group  through  
comprehensive  programming  that  is  implemented  through  coordinated  efforts.

PROGRAM  GOALS  
Through  the  Positive  Transitions  comprehensive  programming  we  seek  to  accomplish  the  following:  
Meet  Immediate  Needs  –  Whether  it  is  providing  a  hot  meal  or  a  place  to  stay,  Positive  Transitions  is  dedicated  to  meting  
the  immediate  needs  of  program  participants.    
Educate  –  Positive  Transitions  believes  knowledge  is  power  and  we  want  to  ensure  participants  receive  the  education  
they  need  to  succeed  in  life.    
Provide  Mental  Enrichment  –  Whether  it  is  studying  a  particular  area  in  the  Arts  or  participating  in  new  experiences  
through  a  field  trip,  mental  enrichment  helps  develop  appreciation  and  a  broader  understanding  of  culture  and  community.    
Improve  Physical  Wellness  –  Studies  show  that  physical  disciplines,  such  as  Martial  Arts  and  Yoga,  contribute  to  overall  
health  when  paired  with  healthy  eating  habits.  Physical  disciplines  also  improve  mental  alertness,  emotional  state,  self-­
esteem,  and  self-­control.

PROGRAM  GOALS  –  Continued  
 
Help  Achieve  Self-­Realization  –  Positive  Transitions  provides  these  comprehensive  services  to  help  participants  realize  
and  fulfill  their  potential.    
Make  Aware  of  Community  Resources  –  There  are  many  services  in  the  community  including  legal  services  that  are  
ready  to  serve  those  in  need;;  however,  those  who  are  underprivileged  are  not  always  aware  that  these  resources  exist.    
Develop  Contributing  Citizens  –  Positive  Transitions  emphasizes  accountability  and  teamwork.  It  also  teaches  diversity  
and  leadership,  first  through  the  acceptance  of  leadership,  as  well  as  the  need  for  self-­discipline  and  responsibility.  Our  
hope  is  that  those  who  graduate  from  the  Positive  Transitions  program  will  not  only  achieve  success  in  life  and  become  
community  leaders,  we  also  hope  they  will  come  back  to  volunteer  with  Positive  Transitions  and  mentor  future  
participants.
