The Independent Living program teaches life skills to youth who 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-bed 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.
