Youth Transitioning/Independent Living

Family Options offers staffing supports for youth transitioning from structured, group care settings and into more independent living, community life. We work with agencies to create Specialized Individual Placements Services with Supports for youth to succeed in their independence.

The Independent Living with Supports Program (ILS) is designed to address the needs of youth who are fast approaching adulthood. The youth are established in their own apartments with supports and programming designed to their specific needs. Efforts and preparation are geared towards developing the capacity of the youth to meet the many life stressors and challenges that can occur upon the age of majority.

Our caregivers provide individual and group work in coping skills, daily living and independent living skills, job search, resumes and therapeutic groups on anger management and healthy sexuality.

Our community-­based care team facilitates and supports the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth of youth by promoting a nurturing, safe, non-­judgmental and predictable environment. Through relationships we make every effort to discover and support the unique strengths and goals of youths. The team is committed to extending opportunities for self-­determination wherein a youth’s strengths can prosper and goals for a more satisfying life can be met.
