Tyler was a driven 18-year-old who had been working towards high school graduation, until his parents decided to separate. This caused him to enter a severe depression, losing motivation for school and activities, eventually ending up in residential treatment.

His program recommended him as a great candidate for the CFNH Transitional Residential Enhanced Care Coordination (TR-ECC) program because of his drive to improve. The TRECC program was designed with youth and their families in mind and offers assistance and support to them as they return to their community by creating a plan and providing resources based on the goals that matter most to your family.

Now, through the CFNH TR-ECC program Tyler has been paired with a peer coordinator who helps him keep up his momentum by helping him set personal goals and get professional references that will push him towards his goals. With the help of his peer coordinator and the resources provided, Tyler is now determined to continue moving forward in life and continues to work hard and make the most out of every resource and opportunity CFNH has provided.

Through the TR-ECC program resources, Tyler realized how many opportunities for success were available to him, and was inspired to take action. Tyler now lives with his mother, Susan, and together the work towards having a home based on respect and positivity.

Tyler plans to find employment that allows him to attend a college program at the same time, so that he can further his education while beginning to support himself. For Tyler it is not just about bettering his own life, but also about giving back to his community and he hopes to be able to inspire others like himself someday.

Tyler took the stressful situation that he was in, and with the help of the CFNH TR-ECC program and his peer coordinator, he used it to fuel his success. He has the hard-working mentality and drive to continue his momentum for many years to come and is an exemplary example of the progress that can be made under the guidance of one of the many CFNH programs that is dedicated to helping youths and their families throughout the state.
