More about TAYLRD...

Transitioning to adulthood can be hard. Especially if you have or are at risk of developing a behavioral health challenge. Transition age youth (16-25 years olds) face many different barriers on the road to adulthood. TAYLRD is here to help!!! Transition Age Youth Launching Realized Dreams (TAYLRD) is a federally funded initiative aimed to positively impact the lives of Kentucky’s 16-25 year olds who have, or are at-risk of developing, behavioral health challenges. By improving access to culturally- and developmentally-appropriate supports and services across the state, TAYLRD hopes that all young people in the state of Kentucky can access a seamless array of high-quality services that will help them achieve their goals and reach adulthood successfully.

Our spaces are co-designed with young people to be fun, comfortable, and safe; that is why they offer so many cool things!

What our friends think

Just listen to what other participants have to say.

The Drop has helped me build communication skills and helped me not be so shy around people. They even helped my family when we were at our lowest. The Drop is the best! I owe them the biggest thank you ever!


The Drop is my safe place and always makes me feel better.


The Drop has helped me learn coping skills to deal with my trauma and always been there to support me.


I have been coming to the Zone for a couple of months now, and the staff have been nothing but nice and welcoming. They have helped me with many things like jobs, searching for apartments, and just being someone and somewhere to get help and talk to.

Annastasia Wilson

The Zone has helped me by being therapeutic and giving me a place that I feel accepted. A lot of the people are really nice and there is no judgement about any of my issues.

Camryn Burns

The Zone is a safe place; where youth can feel safe and can interact with, have fun with, socialize with other youth. Also, the peer supports feel like friends and not like therapists. They have helped with some things.
