Our Mission


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!!!

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.

What is TAYLRD?
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.
Statement of Inclusion
TAYLRD fosters a community of inclusion that respects and welcomes the culture, ethnicity, race, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and gender identities of our entire community. We support the personal diversity of each member of our outreach initiatives and drop-in centers.

TAYLRD has 5 main goals..

An enhanced infrastructure of sustainable supports and services for transition age youth
More public awareness of signs and symptoms for serious behavioral health challenges facing young people and the developmentally appropriate responses to those challenges.
Increased outreach and engagement to youth, youth adults, and their families by service providing agencies.
Improved access to service for young adults that meet cultural and linguistic needs.
A continuous quality improvement system, which includes data collection that improves the service that Kentucky’s young people receive.
