Independent Living Program (ILP) for College Students: Haven Home


This program caters to older teens and young adults who has been in our homes and are eager to pursue higher education.  It prepares them for reintegration to the society and independent living whilst finishing their formal education.  Although the participants share the same residence with the newly rescued children at Haven Home, the operation and management of Independent Living Program (ILP) is administered separately and based on different principles. The participants are provided with various opportunities for experiential learning through exposure and community reintegration.  There are set rules conceptualized by the social worker and accepted by the participants and implemented under the supervision of the Social Worker and Home Manager.  The participants are also provided with life skill trainings to enhance their personal and social capabilities.

In this program, the individual growth of each young adult is important.  Apart from all the theoretical knowledge that they learn from school, Kalipay ensures that values formation takes part in the development of each participant under its care.  Imparting the values of love, respect, and care for each other plays a major role in improving the personality of each participant towards becoming a more responsible citizen of the society.  

In addition, a Social Worker manages the case of each participant. An individualized developmental plan is conceptualized, understood, and carried out jointly by the social worker and the participant.

As of school year 2018-2019, there is a total of nine college student beneficiaries of Kalipay’s Independent Living Program (ILP).
