Transition Services (16-22 years of age)
The transition years are an exciting and challenging time of change for adolescents, young adults and their families. Youth face many issues that a Pine County Case Manager who specializes in transition can help address. Some of these include: turning 18; change from children's resources to adult resources; new adult resources which may now be available; exploring adult living and vocational services; and guardianship. Schools address this transition age from age 14 until a person leaves public education. Pine County Health and Human Services attempts to match this as closely as possible so transition services are coordinated between County and Schools.
