Shasta - Independent Living Program

Shasta County foster youth face a difficult transition into the world of adult life. Our goal is to assist them by providing resources and skills that will enable these young adults to succeed in their daily living after they have left foster care. Our interactive program gives them the tools to not only to survive, but to become successful at living independently.
