Independent Living Program
The Independent Living Program provides its residents (ages 18-22) an opportunity to live in a trauma informed and therapeutic supportive environment while they work towards obtaining a high school diploma or a further education plan. Residents also strive to gain employment opportunities while achieving a goal of independence through case management. All residents will be asked to save 30% of their income through a savings plan that will be returned to them upon discharge.
The Co-ed Independent Living Program’s are at two convenient locations both within Lynn, MA. The ILP is made up of one (4) bed house and the other program has (7) beds that are subsidized through the Lynn Housing Authority.
“Stepping Out” Services
Even after you leave, ongoing support from your Case Manager can be offered at a low daily rate. With this weekly support our “Stepping Out” residents have the ability to function independently and safely in the community while continuing to work on goals or areas of improvement.
