The Independent Living Skills Program serves youth in Tehama County who are in out-of-home placement after their sixteenth birthday, until they reach the age of twenty-one. The goal of the program is to help these young people learn and practice the independent living skills they need to live on their own. A case manager assists them in such tasks as obtaining identification documents and a driver’s license, composing a resumé, and opening a bank account. The program offers monthly life skills workshops and access to a household goods closet. The youth are also eligible to participate in the Adopt-A-Family and Adopt-A-Grad programs of NVCSS, and may receive free Senior Class photos, courtesy of We Shoot Ya Photography.
