GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

Our independent living department provides ongoing services to young people who have moved into their own apartments. Independent living helps people connect to stable housing opportunities. The team provides ongoing case management, landlord-tenant mediation, home visits, and connections to community referrals.
