FOR TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS

Independent Living Program (ILP) helps youth and young adults from Josephine and Jackson Counties who have been in foster care to transition into adulthood.

ILP’s approach is to build relationships with the youth while teaching essential life skills that prepare the youth to live on their own, with their own community supports. Hearts With A Mission currently serves up to 60 youth in Josephine and Jackson County through funding by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.
