Volunteers of America, Greater New York
When young people age out of foster care, their options are limited. Our four independent living programs in New Jersey provide the stepping stones to adulthood that at-risk youth need to thrive. Residents range in age from 18-20 years old, and live in supervised apartments with a roommate. Our staff is there to support them as well as actively teach skills that they will need to live independently.
Step-Up is a supportive housing program that is also geared toward 18-20-year-olds, who have aged out of the foster system and are at risk of being homeless. Each resident works with a case manager to learn independent living skills and has access to a range of resources until their 21st birthday.
