> Semi-Independent Living
A healthy living environment is essential for youth to make transition into the community successful. The Semi-Independent Living program teaches residents, ages 16-20, the self-sufficiency required to live independently and offers services that address education, employment and life skills. The structured setting is conducive to the development of productivity, independence, self-reliance and personal growth. Young men reside in a home adjacent to our main campus while young women live in an on-campus apartment.
