Clients' openness and willingness to accept TSS support is refreshing and demonstrates a desire we all share – to live happy and fulfilling lives.

Transitional Support Services (TSS) helps clients with co-occurring psychiatric and developmental disabilities achieve their goals through best practices like motivational interviewing and harm reduction.

TSS offers various skills-building groups, one-to-one therapy, psychiatric support, and intensive case management. One-to-one meetings as well as groups help clients to increase coping skills in various areas of difficulty such as anger, anxiety, assaultive behaviors, communication, concentration, depression, impulse control, self esteem, sleep, relationships, substance abuse, suicidal or self-harming behaviors. Help is given to maintain activities of daily living (striving for increased independence in grocery shopping, consuming medications, attending appointments, locating and maintaining stable housing, cleaning, hygiene, etc.)

TSS' Independent Living Program works with adults with developmental disabilities to attain the skills necessary to live independently. Our skilled staff provides compassionate support that inspires hope for a more independent and fulfilling life.

Training is provided in the following areas: cooking, cleaning, shopping, menu planning, meal preparation, money management, public transportation, recreation, community participation, personal health and hygiene, self-advocacy, use of medical dental services, community resource awareness, home and community safety.

TSS also strives to connect people with natural supports in the community.

TSS North and South are funded by Alta California Regional Center.
