Young Adult Care

Helping youth build productive futures when transitioning out of foster care.
Our Emerging Adults Care programs help transform the lives of young men and women in the process of exiting foster care. These programs help bridge live-in care and independent care. 

ADULT CARE PROGRAMS

Hoyleton is working to improve the way foster youth are being prepared to enter adulthood. As an organization, we are constantly evolving and seeking new approaches to providing care. The LifeSet program allows youth, who are aging out of the foster care system, to live independently while still receiving support and guidance. Our LifeSet Specialists meet with youth weekly to build rapport, set monthly goals, assess a youth’s progress, and quickly make any changes to the youth’s plan, which are reviewed monthly.

Transitional Living Programs

This residential program is for intellectually and developmentally delayed men and women ages 17.5 -21 who are transitioning from foster care. The program focuses on teaching important life skills such as socialization techniques, education, securing employment, budgeting, cooking, cleaning and self-care approaches. Hoyleton currently has one residential home for females and one for males both located in the Belleville area.

MEET PANDORA, PROGRAM DIRECTOR AT HAGAR HOUSE

Pandora's experience as a young mom helps her to understand and care for the young women living in Hagar House daily. She spends hours working with each woman, and she helps them develop a plan to live independently. She celebrates young women’s successes as if they were her own children’s. She’s grateful for the family environment that’s been established through the years.

MEET DEVORLETTE, PROGRAM MANAGER AT LEHRE HOUSE

Devorlette’s career at Hoyleton didn’t begin in direct care. She started as an administrator but knew she was capable of doing so much more for our clients. She transitioned out of her administration role and gained direct care experience as a youth care worker doing community outreach programs like after school care and programs for at risk youth. “I’ve always had a passion for children,” Dee explained, so I took to the direct care work easily. After 20 years with Hoyleton she accepted the Program Manager position at Lehre House. “Miss Dee,” as she is referred to by youth in her care, possesses the right combination of nurturing and leadership skills to manage the clients currently living at Lehre House as well as a direct care staff. She admits she gets lost in the work sometimes because there is always something happening in that environment. “You have to be prepared for anything!”
