Our ILP services are delivered by our dedicated Clinical team members using structured apartment settings in the community. CareRite TFC’s ILP services also offers a number of innovative programs within the ILP to prepare the youth for Independent Living and self-sufficiency. Similar to our Therapeutic Foster Care program, during the Orientation phase of ILP, young adults live in an apartment with a roommate and supervised by assigned staff members 24 hours, seven days a week. In partnership with clinical and program staff, the resident is provided with individualized support and direction to help him/her succeed in the communities they call home.
