Villages of Hope (www.villagesofhope.net) is an affiliate of Place of Hope and has been organized to provide independent living, residential support, and essential life-skills development services for emancipated foster youth and other homeless youth.
We are dedicated to providing a supportive and proactive living and learning environment primarily for youth who “age-out” of the state’s foster care system. On September 19, 2006, Villages of Hope acquired a residential community (located in northern Palm Beach County) to provide affordable housing and assistance to youth as they develop life-skills and resources and transition to healthy independence. On any given day, Villages of Hope will serve up to 18 youth ages eighteen to twenty-five in our supervised transitional apartment setting.
Life skills training and development opportunities will also be made available to young adults in transition who are living with family members, friends, in other facilities, and attempting to live on their own.
