Experts estimate that 45 percent of youth leaving foster care become homeless within a year
Each year, ILP ensures a happy, healthy, independent adulthood for more than 60 vulnerable young adults.
Young people who have spent their lives in foster care often struggle when they leave the system. Impact NW’s Independent Living Program (ILP) helps foster care youth ages 14-21 gain the skills they need to successfully transition out of foster care and into adulthood. We work with participants to set and reach attainable goals through one-on-one meetings, weekly job readiness classes, and social and skill-building activities and events.
