Children’s Home of Lubbock offers a Supervised Independent Living Program (SIL) to provide housing and support for “at-risk” foster youth aged out of care. Participants must be between the ages of 18 – 21 years. The SIL program’s ultimate goal is to provide participants with the education, experiences, & skills necessary to become successful and pro-social adults. Participants work with a case manager to develop their treatment plan as they transition to independence. All participants must work and attend school or vocational training.
The program provides life skills training education and opportunities focusing on a variety of topics, including:
- Educational/vocational training
- Money management and consumer awareness
- Access to social services
- Food management and housekeeping
- Health and personal hygiene
- Job seeking and employment etiquette
- Transportation resources
- Community resources
- Emergency and personal safety skills
- Interpersonal communication skills
- Life decisions and responsibilities
- Personal and social relationships
- Legal issues
- Housing issues
- Support networking
- Understanding CPS benefits
