Each year, over 600 youth in Bexar County will age out of the foster care system without a support system to help them transition into adulthood. This age group is at-risk for homelessness, drug abuse and incarceration. Our Supervised Independent Living Program is one of only eight programs in Texas to support young adults as they attend college or vocational school, work in the community or enlist in the military.
Boysville’s Supervised Independent Living Program provides transitional services to youth aging out of foster care. Housing, food allowance and living expenses are provided as well as case management through Boysville’s SIL program. Young adults attending college or vocational school are eligible for scholarships offered through the Boysville Foundation to help offset additional expenses. Therapeutic services and medication management are offered to those needing or requesting additional help. The goal is for each young adult to leave the program with life skills allowing them to become independent and successful adults.
