Project Independence

Project Independence

Pregnant and/or parenting homeless young women (ages 16-20) and their children are provided safe, stable living accommodations while being taught skills to transition them successfully to adulthood. PI meets the specific needs of each individual young person and their child(ren) by providing individualized skill-building opportunities. Opportunities are focused on the goals of breaking the cycle of homelessness, breaking the cycle of child abuse and neglect, and increasing the ability of the young family to stay together.
