Our Programs

Extended Foster Care

There are over half a million children in America’s foster care system. Many will reside in care far too long and eventually “age out” of the system. The sense of hopelessness and despair can be overwhelming and the impacts can be far greater than the immediate, visible effects. Without basic life skills, youth who leave care can have difficulty finding safe housing, getting and keeping a steady job, staying healthy, and avoiding financial and legal trouble. There is often no one with whom they share small successes or from whom advice can be sought. Simple emergencies can easily escalate into full-blown crises. Encompassing the five areas of growth, Extended Foster Care offers a dormitory-style housing facility supported by a live-in Residential Assistant. This E.F.C. program offers the next natural step of growth and independence for a young adult upon their 18th birthday. Our top priority for our E.F.C. residents is that they earn their high school diploma. This milestone immediately sets them ahead of peers from a similar background and motivates them to continue their path of success.

Available campuses: Lake Park and Boca Raton

Traditional Independent Living

With the support of an onsite Residential Manager and a Campus Coordinator, the Villages of Hope program provides ongoing direction, encouragement and training to ensure the highest possible success rate. This program offers hope to homeless young adults, former foster youth and survivors of human trafficking. Residents live in a duplex, with their own bedroom. Weekly meetings are set up to ensure consistent growth and evaluation. Residents agree to actively participate in their individualized program for one year and are invited to reapply for an additional year if they have demonstrated progress in the five areas of the program.

Mommy-n-Me

Encompassing the same support systems and expectations as Traditional Independent Living, the Mommy-n-Me program supports a parenting young adult with the additional living space of a nursery, larger bathroom and in-unit washer and dryer. These residents also access specialized services for new parents as well as the opportunity to receive day care assistance, enabling them to take the next steps in their education or career.

Supportive Housing

With the infrastructure of the Villages of Hope program, our supportive housing model aids in stabilizing family units that would otherwise breakdown. The result of such comprehensive services is consistent family employment, financial stability, and emotional health. All of this leads to a significant decrease in child abuse and neglect as well as an increase in healthy parenting and long term independence. Within the haven of a safe, comfortable home, these families have the opportunity to focus on their educational and career goals while addressing underlying needs and hindrances.
