If you are between the age of 16 and 21, and you are looking for ways to be better prepared for the challenges of emancipation and adulthood, the Independent Living Program* (ILP) is for you! ILP provides workshops, special events and support services to help you prepare for emancipation. You’ll join over 600 current and former foster youth who attend ILP workshops and special events each year. Workshops focus in the 7 areas of Daily Living Skills, Education, Employment, Housing, Family/Social Support, Financial Responsibility and Health, and help prepare you to live on your own more confidently and better equipped for the challenges that adulthood brings.
“The staff are raw and real when assessing our problems and strengths at the time of entrance into the program, and for the duration of the program they work relentlessly with us towards becoming the noble men and women we’ve envisioned ourselves to be”– Ally
*This Program is provided in collaboration with the County of Orange Social Services Agency.
