About TLS




Transitional Living Services of Northern New York (TLS) is a private not-for-profit agency which was incorporated in 1977 to establish residential services for individuals in need of psychiatric, rehabilitative support who were unable to live independently in the community. Since 1977 our agency has expanded and now provides services to children, adolescents and adults. TLS’ primary goal is to assist people to live in the least restrictive setting possible. This goal is accomplished through varying levels of support.

TLS strives to develop services that stay within the parameters of our vision “Making the best care better”; and our Mission “Compassionate people providing dignified, person-centered services that promote mental health and empower people to achieve their goals, hopes and dreams in a community of mutual respect”. The Board of Directors and staff at TLS believe in accomplishing this mission through strengths based, person and family centered, individualized approach.

By providing diverse levels of care for adults, children and adolescents, we feel we are better able to help individuals living with mental illness, children with emotional and or behavioral issues and disadvantaged youth. It is also our belief that prevention is the first and most important line of defense against future difficulties and struggles for the individuals we serve.

TLS currently provides services to adults and children in counties throughout Northern New York; these services include Supported Housing, Adult and Children’s Community Residences, Treatment Apartments, OMH Waiver Services, Supportive Case Management, St. Lawrence County Respite and most recently a SACC After-School Program (Student Connections) in Lewis County. Staffs at TLS have extensive experience providing services to adults and children living with mental illness. Qualified staff includes many Masters prepared professionals as well as Registered Nurses.

Clients are linked with community resources and supports through a comprehensive continuum of care. Our staff are competent in all current best practices and evidenced based interventions receiving high levels of training annually.

TLS consistently receives the highest ratings from the New York State Office of Mental Health. Currently TLS is seeking to expand and provide an even more comprehensive array of services that will continue to support the communities we serve.
