DescriptionA Change Generation Independent Living Program provides young adults the opportunity to practice daily living skills and prepare for the future in a semi-supervised apartment setting. Young adults enrolled in the program will share a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1300 sq ft, and fully furnished apartment at no cost to them. Young adults have access to program staff 24 hours/ 7 days a week and services to meet their individualized needs. It is the goal of the program to meet our mission by providing young adults with a supportive living environment, superior case management, therapeutic services, community integration, and living skill development to ensure their successful transition into adulthood. The independent living program is designed to improve the transition into adulthood for youth ages 18-21 who are or who have been in the foster care system. To be successful upon departure from care, each youth will have opportunity to learn skills based on their individual needs. The overall goal of the independent living program is that all former foster youth, regardless of their personal plans, will be prepared to live independently.
