Residential Services | Chelsea
The Chelsea Foyer at The Christopher provides supportive housing to young adults in their late teens and early twenties who have aged out of the child welfare system, are homeless, or at risk of homelessness.
Residents participate in a personalized program of services for up to 24 months with the goal of preparing them for independent permanent housing, employment, and careers. The young men and women live semi-independently, in studio apartments or suites, while receiving a continuum of services to help them gain the competencies and confidence necessary for long-term self-sufficiency.
Case management services are offered on-site, as are linkages to rigorous job training and placement, educational and life skills development. Foyer residents are also taught and encouraged to become completely self-sufficient, pursuing jobs with benefits to avoid the need for public assistance.
The program is based on a successful European model. Our Foyer program was one of the first of its kind in the United States, and the very first Foyer anywhere to specialize in serving former foster care youth.
