Brief Description

The Independent Living Program, developed by Lighthouse Youth Services, is designed to provide referrals and case management support to enable older youth to complete their education, gain employment, obtain housing, participate in life-skills training, get mental health counseling and other support services, and move toward becoming responsible and productive members of the community. These youth could be aging out of the child welfare or juvenile justice systems, at risk of homelessness, or unable to return to biological families.
