Independent Living

The Independent Living program teaches life skills to youth that have experienced incarceration, treatment, homelessness, or out of home placement. Youth in this program focus on employment, education, health, financial management skills, recreation, and family relationships.

We also have two fully furnished 2-bedroom apartments that provide opportunities for tenants to gain self-sufficiency and independence.

The young adults participating in these programs determine what success means to them and develop a plan to accomplish their vision. Independent Living staff provides one-on-one mentorship and access to multiple community resources to help each individual achieve their goals.

We also have a day center for anyone who needs access to basic resources or simply a space to be. It includes: 

  • Computer and wifi access
  • Laundry, shower, and a full bathroom
  • Kitchen area and food pantry
  • Lounge Area 

The day center is open 8:00am-5:00pm M-F and located at the west end of our building at 1876 S Sheridan Avenue.
