“We Deal In Futures”

You’re growing up.

You’re reaching out.

You’re stretching to the limits.

You’re making your own sense out of life. And the Contra Costa County Independent Living Skills Program is here to help you every step along the way.

Growing up in foster care presents some unique challenges. There are many corners and pages for you to turn. You have some rights and some responsibilities, and we’ll help you sort through both. Getting ready for emancipation can be work, but there’s also a lot of fun to be had.

Are you headed to college? We'll find mentors and tutors for you. We’ll take you on campus tours. We'll help you apply for financial aid and scholarships.

Ready to roll up your sleeves and go to work? We’ll help you with resumes and practice job interviews with you. We’re here ready to offer advice, if you ask.

We’ll help you find an apartment and a roommate. We’re here with resources, ideas and even a shoulder if you ever need one.

Come make new friends. Discover more about what’s waiting for you in the real world. Along the way, you’ll meet a lot of wonderful people—people you can count on…everyday.
