SOLO (Supported Independent Living) is a community-based program that supports youth in preparing for independence in the community. SOLO provides funding for living expenses and accommodation.

Youth meet regularly with a Placement Coordinator who provides ongoing support to increase knowledge in finance, nutrition, shopping on a budget, cooking, home maintenance, personal wellness, problem solving and conflict resolution, communication and relationship skills, employment, education, career search, building support networks and much more.

Youth live in their own apartment in the community and as they increase their ability to live independently, there is a gradual withdrawal of support services.

All applicants must:

  • be able to manage their day to day activities and personal affairs without a high
    degree of structure or supervision
  • demonstrate the skills and maturity for semi-independent living
  • be emotionally stable
  • be willing to take responsibility for their choices and demonstrate a willingness
  • to learn skills related to independence

SOLO Program Age/Eligibility:
Youth ages 15-24 who have Children’s Services Status can apply.
