ACH Child and Family Services LIFE Project
The regional Supervised Independent Living (SIL) Program is contracted by TDFPS with the ACH Child and Family Services Life Project. The SIL Program is a type of voluntary Extended Foster Care placement where young adults can live on their own, not in foster care, yet still receive some benefits of being in care like receiving case management and support services that will help them become self-sufficient. You will not be supervised 24 hours a day and will live in your own college dorm room, apartment, shared housing, host home or non-college dorm. You will be able to manage your own finances, buy your own groceries and prepare meals and work with a landlord. To qualify for the SIL program, you must meet eligibility requirements for extended foster care. SIL is a wonderful resource that can help provide for an eligible student’s housing needs.
