Supervised Independent Living Program (SILP)

Supportive apartment program for 17-21 year old pregnant, parenting or single youth in the Foster Care system. Our program focuses on using the Trauma Informed Care Model to embrace the needs of our youth and deliver services that are based on trust, safety, choice, empowerment, and collaboration.

Community Supervised Independent Living Program (COMM SILP)

Our community independent living program is an option for youth who have “graduated” from our residential programs. Youth in this program choose an approved apartment anywhere in Erie or Niagara County and Homespace pays their rent and utilities until they are 21 years old. At that time they take over the lease and remain in the apartment as an adult.
