Independent Living Services

Young adults, ages 18-21 who have aged out of foster care, are eligible for Independent Living Services. Independent Living Services eases the transition from foster care for young adults by providing the tools necessary to help them succeed and thrive on their own. An Independent Living Specialist focuses on resource and skill development to help young adults live successfully in the community by building an Individualized Life Skills Plan. There are also opportunities for groups.

Independent Living Services include assistance for young adults with:

  • Applying for college
  • Finding a job
  • Managing a budget
  • Finding affordable housing
  • Meal planning
