Working toward independence
The unemployment rate for the majority of clients we serve is double the national average. Unity Care programs effectively mentor and engage our youth and families in finding gainful employment and careers that will provide stability and a sustainable source of income.
Independent Living Program (ILP)
Serving current and former foster youth (ages 16-21), ILP develops the life skills needed to become self-sufficient through positive mentorship, regular workshops, and individualized services. Program curriculum, outings, guest speakers, and videos enhance the learning process. In partnership with iFoster, eligible youth receive job coaching and placement in entry-level positions at Raley’s. (Photo by Tricia Caspers-Ross, Auburn Journal)
Independent Living Skills Program (ILSP)
ILSP prepares current and former foster youth (ages 14-19) to exit the foster care system and ensures successful transition to adulthood. Youth attend hands-on workshops to learn critical life skills and develop goals. Life Skills Coordinators work one-on-one to support working toward independence.
