Independent Living Services

The Independent Living Skills program is available to Samish youth ages 13 to 21 years who are/have been in foster care. The youth complete a standardized assessment of life skills, which determines areas in which the youth needs assistance. Multiple areas are reviewed including: education, social skills, self-esteem, and job readiness. A plan is developed with the youth to address the areas that need improvement. Training skills may include budgeting, cooking, laundry, hygiene, and critical thinking.
