Impact Living Services (ILS) provides comprehensive supportive services for 17-21 year old foster youth.
ILS has apartments in Lynchburg, Roanoke, Richmond, and Harrisonburg.
ILS promotes interdependence as a core belief in helping youth achieve their educational, vocational and financial goals.
Interdependence is an idea of "mutual dependence between things" (i.e. community, friends, staff, DSS and counselors).
Youth are most successful when they achieve lifelong permanency through these various avenues.
ILS promotes the idea of creating lasting relationships and services for youth in the program.
Below are key services that ILS provides:
On-Site supervision for all campuses.
Alarm, motion and monitoring detectors for apartments through professionally monitored security companies.
Monitoring alarm services accessed through each case manager's smartphone. Access gives ILS staff the ability to keep track of all doors, windows and motion detector services and relay them to social worker or locality if desired.
Level 2 services offer a high level of support and supervision through daily face to face contacts, apartment cleanliness checks, and curfew checks, while Level 1 services are more appropriate for youth who have earned greater independence and trust as they have matured and progressed successfully through the program.
On-call support and services 24 hrs a day including holidays and weekends.
Social workers and localities will receive detailed and comprehensive case management logs monthly and upon request to keep track of service plans, transitional goals, employment and school progress, counseling treatment, and medication management.
Financial management services are used to help youth budget, save, and track their finances. Custodial, fee-free bank accounts are set up for all youth through Wells Fargo so that each youth can meet realistic saving goals if employed.
ILS is excited to partner alongside mothers in need of independent living services. Each mother will receive their own two bedroom fully furnished apartment. It is vital for each mother and their child(ren) to have a home that meets their needs.
