Semi-Independent Living

Semi-Independent LivingThe semi independent program provides a transitional living experience for older adolescents preparing for independence. Zigmund Hall is located on campus and is licensed by the Commonwealth of PA 3800 regulations to provide services.

Although campus based, it is an independent program as it consists of eight efficiency apartments. Each resident will have an apartment and will be required to follow the program to prepare for total independence. The purpose of the Children’s Home of Easton’s Semi Independent Living program (SIL) is to provide independent living services for youth that are unable to live with their own or a substitute family, have no place to return to, and to prepare for independence and live on their own. We will provide apartment living for up to eight individuals who must have a full time program consisting of, educational program, high school or GED program, community college, trade school, or are employed. Along with the admission process, they must request in writing their “plan” and reasons they should be given this opportunity to reside in Zigmund Hall in our SIL program.
