Out-of-Home Residential Programs (Volunteers of America)

Volunteers of America’s out-of-home residential programs in Northern New Jersey provide the support and guidance these young people need. Our programs offer guidance to youth who may be experiencing emotional, behavioral and/or psychological difficulties, as well as homelessness. For some youth, our homes provide the stability and security they never felt before.

Independent Living Program - consists of four programs in New Jersey for youth ages 17-21 who are aging out of foster care. These youth live in supervised apartments with a roommate and staff teach them the skills needed to live on their own (accepting male and female referrals)
