Achieving independence is a milestone moment in a person’s life. Our Supported Independent Living (SIL) program helps prepare and support young people to make a smooth transition from living in Out-of-Home Care (Foster Care) to living independently.
SIL participants are given the opportunity to experience the realities of budgeting, paying rent and bills, shopping for and preparing meals, maintaining a household, and looking after themselves, all with the security of experienced caseworkers available to provide help and support. In doing so, participants gain the necessary skills and confidence to take over their own lease at the end of the program’s duration in a critical step towards adulthood.
