The Owensboro Mary Kendall Campus- Independent Living Program (MKC-ILP) is a close-knit, all-female program for young adults who welcome support as they transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency. We offer around the clock skilled, nurturing staff who invests their time and assistance mentoring young adults in targeted life skills.
Our options include:
Teens learn cooking skills inside a shared apartment.
Because our youth have a wide range of individual needs and circumstances, we coordinate services with other federal, state and local agencies engaged in similar activities:
Department of Vocational Rehabilitation ovr.ky.gov
Goodwill Industries www.goodwillky.org
Job Corps www.jobcorps.gov/home.aspx
Volunteers of America www.voaky.org
Opportunities For Work and Learning www.owlinc.net
Family support with DCBS chfs.ky.gov/dcbs/dfs
We are currently only able to serve youth committed to the Department of Community Based Services (DCBS). If you are a youth who is no longer committed or a person working with a youth no longer committed, you can contact the Statewide ILP Coordinator for information specific to you, 1-800-232-5437, or Chafee.ILP@ky.gov
