SIL+ Open House in Chester County
Last month, we opened a new SIL+ site in Chester County and celebrated with an open house! See below for a few photos from the event. Thank you to everyone who attended and to our staff in Chester County for coordinating a successful opening!
The Supervised Independent Living Plus (SIL+) program consists of individual apartments for youth in the same building or apartment complex. Valley Youth House supports youth in finding an apartment, signing a lease, and obtaining services such as utilities, and provides funding for monthly rent, utilities, transportation, and groceries. Funding is provided on a step down basis where youth assume increasing levels of responsibility for monthly payments. This step down process is designed to enable the youth to maintain their financial obligations upon program discharge.
