Valley Youth House receives $20,000 award from the Connelly Foundation
Valley Youth House is pleased to announce its selection to receive a 2 year grant of $20,000 from the Connelly Foundation, to support general operations for the Philadelphia Independent Living Programs, which provide support for homeless youth.
In addition to housing support, youth work with their Life Skills Counselor to complete an individualized plan that identifies manageable employment, education, and life skills goals. Upon successfully exiting the program, youth become self-sufficient and are able to maintain permanent stable housing. 91% of young adults remained in stable housing after completing the VYH Independent Living program in 2013.
VYH was previously awarded a grant from the Connelly Foundation in 2012. Additional information on Valley Youth House programs can be found at www.vyhphila.org.
