About This Program

Target Population: Young adults between the ages 17 and 22 who are leaving the foster care, juvenile justice, and/or mental health systems

For children/adolescents ages: 17 – 22

Brief Description

YVLifeSet provides intensive in-home support and guidance to young adults leaving the foster care, juvenile justice, and/or mental health systems, as well as to others who find themselves at this stage in life without the necessary skills and supports to make a successful transition to adulthood. Program success is defined as a young adult’s maintenance of stable and suitable housing, avoidance of negative legal involvement, participation in an educational/vocational program, and development of life skills necessary to become a successful, productive citizen. The program not only assists with young adults who are “aging out” of state custody, but also works with the young person’s family and support systems to ensure a more successful transition.

The goals of the YVLifeSet program are:

  • Maintenance of stable and suitable housing
  • Avoidance of negative legal involvement
  • Participation in an educational/vocational program
  • Establishment of permanent relationships with caring adults
  • Development of the life skills necessary to become a successful, productive citizen
