Independent Living

Community housing for young adults

All young adults learn to navigate lives of independence as they grow into adulthood. KDC empowers individuals to build skills and create opportunities for success.

Program Overview

KDC’s Independent Living is a community housing program to help young adults transition from long-term foster care into lives of independence. While living in an all-female or all-male private apartment, participants work with daytime support staff who help build their skills for employment, education, budgeting and household management.

Our Difference

KDC provides two fully furnished private apartments to meet the housing needs of individuals.
