Juvenile Services

Independent Living Program

The Independent Living Program (ILP) provides services to youth in and out of placement.  ILP provides youth workshops such as education and employment conferences and life skills classes and access to events to educate and assist youth and young adults who are released from out-of-home placement.
Each year ILP strives to find new and innovative ways to assist youth toward self-sufficiency.  ILP Probation Officers work with the youth to create a Transitional Independent Living Plan (TILP), which details goals for the successful transition toward adulthood.   

What is TILP?
The Transitional Independent Living Plan (TILP) is developed by the youth and their probation officer, which details the goals to be met to successfully transition toward adulthood. The plan also identifies activities necessary to meet goals and who will help the youth achieve these goals.

Who is eligible?
  • Youth who had a placement order between the ages of 16-18
  • Youth who were placed in a Title IVE placement from ages 16-18 are eligible for ILP services while placed and after placement until their 21st birthday
  • Youth placed in a non Title IVE placement like a Camp or Ranch between the ages of 16-18 are eligible after leaving or completing this program
  • Youth who were/are 16 years of age, up to 18 years of age and in receipt of the Kinship Guardianship Assistance Payment Program (KinGap) assistance
