Adolescent Initiative Program (AIP)

Program Overview:

Tabors's A.I.P. program was created in 2001 as a means of providing Independent Living Skills training and support to transition age foster youth (14-21).

Tabor is the sole provider of these services in Bucks County. Youth in this program have experienced  foster care and/or congregate care placement through Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency. Independent Living services help young people with skills and resources to support successful transition to adulthood.

Youth who participate in Independent Living services complete a needs assessment, develop a plan, and achieve certain goals. Services are offered individually and through classes. Youth build and practice life skills in areas such as educational planning, career support, financial literacy, housing, legal, and health and wellness.
