In today's evolving world with constant technological breakthroughs, breaking free from the comforts of your parents' home and living independently can be a scary process. Teenagers who are old enough to be independent can feel confused or overwhelmed because of the many options available. One of the hardest steps is starting the process, but there are independent programs that can provide guidance.

Valley Youth House

Valley Youth House offers different programs related to housing in Pennsylvania depending on what crisis the teen faces. There are strict eligibility requirements and exclusions teens must follow for the protection and benefit of other youth enrolled in the programs. Qualified individuals are typically between the ages of 16 and 21 and attend different housing workshops on areas that include choosing roommates, cleaning house and what to do when things go wrong. After completing the workshops, those enrolled take a final assessment and receive a certificate of completion. Staff members are available 24 hours a day, and life skills counsellors meet with each teenager at least twice a week to help them reach their goals.
