Community Apartment Program (CAP)

Young people ages 16 ½ to 21 who have been in the foster care system have the opportunity to learn to live on their own in one of our community apartments. Youth live in one or two-bedroom apartments in a northeast Rochester complex with our staff on-site and available around the clock. This program promotes independence, prevents homelessness and decreases the dependence on public assistance. Residents are required to work and/or be enrolled in an educational or vocational program. We help them master independent living skills, including budgeting and cooking, and help them set and achieve personal goals.
