Semi- and Fully Independent Living Programs

Semi- and Fully Independent Living Programs

We stand for gaining independence through support and stability.

Living life independently with confidence, authority, and grace is a learned skill that does not always come easily or naturally.

We keep life skills top-of-mind in our community home settings across the Mid-Atlantic, each aimed at developing youth in their journey to become self-sufficient, contributing community members.

In each home, we seek to integrate residents into the community, getting them involved in a greater network of support and care through areas like recreation, education, and job skill readiness. Residents work closely with an Everstand treatment team (therapist, psychologist, house supervisor, etc.) and focus on developing core life skills. Youth exist the foster care system at age 21, which is also the most common reason for discharge from Everstand’s semi and fully-independent group homes.  Youth transition to placement with family or guardian, an adult group home, or to living independently.
