Transitioning Into Living On Your Own

In life, there are MANY transitions to be made . . .

One of those important transitions is one many of us make - the transition to living on our own.

This transition can be both exciting and stressful. There are some important things to consider, as well as important decisions to make. There is new and important information you may need to make this transition successful. There may also be new life skills to learn.

These pages are intended to help those who are making the transition to living on their own, as well as those who are supporting them. The information and links provided will give you access to knowledge and resources to help you make informed decisions as well as a successful transition plan.

"Living on your own." Obviously, someone making this transition will most likely need a place - a new home - in which they can live on their own. Please visit our "Transition Housing Resources" page, (located in the menu at the left), for information about rental assistance programs, accessible housing, and how you might qualify to participate in these programs.

You will also find rental properties and management companies located in Duluth and the surrounding area listed to help you begin shopping for a new home. Otherwise, to access additional information and resources, please use the links below:
