|Independent Living (ILPA)|
The LAYC Independent Living Program Apartments (ILPA) empowers young adults 18-21 years old to live independently within a supportive community. ILPA youth will maintain employment, secure stable housing, and learn to access community resources. Living apart but working together, the ILPA will support youth in their positive development and prepare youth to take the next step toward more independent living.
ILPA participants may take full advantage of LAYC-wide program resources including but not limited to: workforce skill development offerings, educational enhancement, and recreational activities.
CRITERIA FOR ADMISSION
ILPA will provide mentorship and support services to self-motivated young adults who want to secure employment, pursue further education, and maintain safe and stable housing upon turning 21 and transitioning out of the foster care system.
