Help Our Kids
Become an SIL Home Provider
Many adolescents have no where to go. They have no one who wonders where they are or how they are doing. They have no one to help them through the every day challenges of adolescents.
We need people who would be willing to be “home providers”. A home provider rents a room of their home to one of our teens, develops a contract of expectation with the teen, is a positive role model, and provides two meals a day. The teen receives a stipend each month that covers the cost of rent, clothing, one meal a day and other personal needs. The rent for the month is part of their budgeted expenses. Home providers also receive assistance from the Holy Cross caseworkers if problems arise.
The HCCS Supervised Independent Living Program provides older adolescents with the a necessary support system during this transitional phase of their life. Our especially trained workers act as life coaches helping the youth develop a legal and independent life style. They work alongside the youth, helping them find a home-provider or an apartment, teaching them life skills and helping them enroll in school or find employment. As they experience success, the youth develop self-reliance and self-esteem.
If you are interested in becoming a home provider, please contact one of our four SIL offices.
