The Older Youth Program provides an independent living experience with the support of our CHE "family" while transitioning into adulthood. Zigmund Hall is located on campus and is licensed by the Commonwealth of PA 3800 regulations to provide services. The program serves youth between the ages of 16 and 21 through a personalized, independent living curriculum that prepares them for their future.
The purpose of The Children's Home of Easton's Independent Living Program is to provide independent living services for youth that are unable to live with their own, or substitute family, have no place to return to, and to prepare for independence and live on their own. We provide housing and financial assistance, and emotional and environmental support through personalized case management and community engagement for up to eight individuals. These individuals 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 Independent Living Program.
