About Challengers

Challengers Independent Living, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing independent life skills services to teens and young adults in long-term foster care. These youth have a variety of clinical issues, including but not limited to, sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, learning disabilities and severe emotional disturbances. Our mission is to provide comprehensive independent life skills training to individuals, ages 15-21 and living in foster care, in order to prepare them for a positive and productive self-sufficient life post discharge from foster care.

Challengers administer our program through our continuum of care. We believe that there is a population in Maryland’s foster care system that unfortunately has been targeted for independent living. This population’s chances of adoption or reunification is less than 10% Therefore, if this population must live self-sufficiently, our model suggests that the teaching/learning process begin immediately. Therefore Challengers’ Continuum of care will accept Participants as young as 15 years of age. Our goal is to provide an environment where our Participants can learn, practice and develop independent life skills in a safe and supportive environment. The CCC is as follows:
