Independent Living Closet

Description

The Department of Child Safety has and Independent Living Program for youth that are aging out of the foster care system.  They have asked the churches to be involved with helping those youth get established on their own.  

Independent Living Closet

This year we have launched the IL Closet, which provides the necessities for starting up a home to youth who have aged out of the system.  This closet allows these youth to come and pick out some of their most-needed items for their new apartments/dorms/etc.  We collect all new towels, dishes, sheets and pillows, cleaning supplies, utensils and small appliances for the youth to pick from.
