     WHAT IS THE FRESNO COUNTY  

INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAM? 

fresno

The Independent Living Program (ILP) provides services to Fresno County probation and foster youth ages 14-21.  Our goal is to provide them with a sense of community and belonging while providing them with the necessary skills and support to obtain self-sufficiency.  ILP Social Workers assist in the development of a transition plan, academic advising, employment referrals, and housing assistance.

WHAT ARE ILP AFTERCARE SERVICES? 

 Once a youth’s case is dismissed from Juvenile Dependency Court or their Juvenile Probation case is dismissed, eligible youth may continue to receive ILP services. The youth must meet with an ILP Social Worker to open up an aftercare case.  This aftercare case entitles the youth to receive services until the age of 21.
