DCCH started the Independent Living Program in 2017. We help young adults who have been in foster care and have recommitted to state care once they turned 18. These adults may elect to reenter the system before to their 19th birthday.
DCCH helps locate an apartment close to the individual's work and school. We also furnish the apartment with items they will keep when they leave the program. Every adult works with a case manager and therapist to help guide them along their journey. Our team assists by helping remove barriers and guaranteeing success.
You can help too! Consider becoming a mentor to these young adults. You can provide much needed support. Some mentors teach skills, donate new or gently-used furniture, or prepare dinners.
