About This Program
Target Population: Emancipating foster care youth ages 18-24, including pregnant and parenting youth
For children/adolescents ages: 18 – 24
LEASE, a program of Larkin Street Youth Services, is a scattered-site residential program for youth ages 18-24 who have emancipated from the foster care system. Youth are housed in studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom apartments and receive a range of supportive services including counseling, employment training, education counseling, and case management. Most participants attend college on a part-time or full-time basis. Youth work with their Case Manager to develop an individual plan to meet their unique needs. For all participants, an emphasis is placed on developing the life skills needed for independent living such as household organization and money management.
