TGIF "GET A LIFE"
Supervised Independent Living (SIL) Program
TGIF's "GET A LIFE" Supervised Independent Living (SIL) Program is a voluntary Extended Foster Care placement where young adults can live on their own, while still getting casework and support services to help them become independent and self-sufficient.
In "GET A LIFE SIL placements, young people are not supervised 24 hours a day by an adult and have the responsibility to meet their own day-to-day needs. Depending on their personal goals they can stay or return to foster care up until their 21st birthday—or 22nd if they're working on a high school diploma or GED.
Participation is voluntary.
If you are interested you will be required to sign an agreement to participate in one or more of the following activities:
Attend high school or working on a GED.
Attend college for at least 6 hours per semester.
Work at least 80 hours per month.
Participate in a job or skills training program.
Have a documented medical reason for an inability to complete any of the above.
