Established in 2007 with support from the New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P), YBN’s Independent Living Program (ILP) fulfills the dual mission of helping young adults become self-reliant and supporting the population of young adults who are homeless or living in unstable housing. The program offers up to eighteen (18) YBN graduates and students up to two years of secure housing and support services. Residents:

  • Meet for weekly group discussions;
  • Take part in productive social activities;
  • Receive a monthly grocery allowance; and
  • Participate in community service activities.

The program is only available to current YBN students or graduates who are under the age of 21. YBN collaborates with the Corinthian Housing Development Corporation.
