SOLO With Supports (SWS) is a community-based program that assesses and teaches living skills to teens requiring extra support in determining their ability to live independently.

The youth lives in a Mentor Support Home and receives hands-on 24-hour supervision and support. Mentors are part of the treatment team developing and strengthening the youth’s skills for independence. Youth are also assigned an SWS Coordinator who provides ongoing assistance to the youth and Mentor.

The Mentor and Coordinator encourage the development
of living skills, including:

  • Finances
  • Time Management
  • Nutrition
  • First Aid/Safety
  • Personal Wellness-Health
  • Employment
  • Social Relationship Skills

Youth are expected to attend a day-program throughout the year that is appropriate to their needs, such as school, work or a community program. They also must meet with their Coordinator for a minimum of 5 hours each week for task-oriented and goal-directed skill development.

SWS Program Age/Eligibility:
Youth aged 15-22 years who have Children’s Services Status are referred by their Case Worker. Intakes that do not meet the requirements for SOLO may also be directly referred to SWS.
