An agency for which I have been working operates just such housing in two counties in northwestern Washington State. It is difficult to set up, administrate and staff, but fills a genuine need for teenagers and young adults who cannot, for various reasons, live with parents or other caretakers. Various services are also provided, including comprehensive case management.

I assume similar programs are available elsewhere.
