Transitions to Community Living Initiative

The Transitions to Community Living Initiative (TCLI) gives eligible adults living with serious mental illness or severe and persistent mental illness the opportunity to choose where they live and work.

The initiative connects people to treatment services and supports that help them maintain a home in their own name, instead of living in a facility. Participants develop person-centered plans and are linked to mental and physical healthcare providers in the community to support whole-person care. TCLI also helps individuals identify their interests and refers them to supported employment services.

Vaya Health manages the TCLI program in western North Carolina. Anyone can refer an individual to the program.
