First Steps for Youth

SERVICE PLANNING AREA:

First Steps for Youth is a supervised transitional housing placement program (THPP) for pre-emancipated foster youth ages 16 to 18 who are working to obtain a high school diploma, GED or vocational certificate. We provide youth with independent living skills training and the opportunity to utilize these skills through practical application. Youth are placed in apartments, typically with roommates, and are afforded the greatest amount of freedom DCFS allows. Participants are able to work on completing their high school diploma or its equivalent, while living independently. Cooking, budgeting, grocery shopping, and apartment upkeep are among the many independent livings skills that participants learn. Participants are also able to learn valuable social skills while living in safe communities. Getting along with neighbors and participating in the community is the norm at First Steps for Youth. Participants learn how to handle real life situations and navigate their way through life successfully!
