VYH Opens “Patti’s House” Site For Young Men in West Chester
Valley Youth House is proud to announce the opening of “Patti’s House”, a Supervised Independent Living site for young men in West Chester, PA. The Supervised Independent Living Plus (SIL+) program supports youth in a dormitory style group setting under the supervision of a live-in Resident Advisor. Youth are supported with job readiness, educational support and provided with programming around life skills development. The site is located in a residential area in the community. Valley Youth House provides funding for monthly rent, utilities, transportation, and groceries. The site, located at 843 Rosary Ln, West Chester, PA 19382, will house 8 young men between the ages of 16 and 20.
Patti’s House is a generous partnership between Valley Youth House, JMB Property Management, and Patricia Walsh. JMB Property Management found and purchased the property, which will be leased to VYH, and Patricia Walsh has generously furnished the site.
Thanks to the vision and generosity of Patricia Walsh of Wayne, PA, Valley Youth House recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on their newest home for young men in Chester County who are transitioning out of foster care.
