I wish someone had told me people would expect more from me when I transitioned out of foster care. – Charles
Thinking about life after foster care doesn’t have to be filled with doubt. There are many tools like the Independent Living Program (ILP) to help you as you get ready to leave foster care.
The goal of the Independent Living Program (ILP) is to help you reach your goals for independence and success and to prepare you to lead a healthy, productive, responsible, and self-sufficient life. You can get money for college, job training, mentoring and more.
You can also learn about the Transitional Independent Living Plan, or TILP. TILP is not the same thing as the Independent Living Program, but you’ll need one to be able to receive financial benefits.
