Family Residence Independent Living Skills (FRILS) Agency Operated Foster Homes are a family type home that can house up to 6 youth, male or female, between the ages of 0 and 21 years of age. These youth require more services or supervision than a private home can provide. Each home has a foster parent and support staff to assist the youth in being successful in their placement.
The Independent Living Skills Program helps youth ages 14 and older develop daily living skills such as learning how to cook and clean; ability to form positive relationships and problem solve; learning how to access community services; gain employment skills and how to budget money. Youth will receive one on one counseling as well as quarterly group activities.
All youth must be referred to the FRILS Program by the Delaware County Department of Social Services.
