Transitional Housing Ages 18-24
Excel Into Independence, NFP, was founded with the initial goal of providing transitional housing to females ages 18-24 in the Chicagoland area. However, it was soon realized that there were many more undeserved demographics, such as young men, disabled youth and the LBGTQ community across the United States.
Should you or someone you know may be in need of assistance, please call our hotline at 1-855-392-3512 or complete the form in Contact Us. Please describe in detail the services that you need. One of our Client Liaisons will respond within 24 hours or less to your request.
Excel is planning to adding these demographics to their services portfolio in the 4th quarter of 2019.
Assistance with College Enrollment, Campus Housing and Meal Plans (CCHMP Program)
Working with the youth and discovering that several participants wanted the opportunity to attend college, Excel developed the CCHMP Program. It is astonishing to know that so many college students either have issues with enrolling in college, do not understand what financial assistance may be available, understanding how to obtain housing and obtaining meal plans. We decided to work with the students and financial aid offices at various colleges to assist the potential students with obtaining these necessary items to attend college. Additionally, the youth receive education regarding campus life and how to adjust to living, sometimes for the first time on their own.
Thus far, Excel is proud to have assisted a few dozen students with enrolling and several with successfully completing their degree programs.
Basic Job and Work/Life Skills Training
Excel is proud to provide job and work/life skills training to the homeless and disenfranchised youth. It is rewarding to teach them basic skills that will help them throughout their lives.
Excel partners with various job placement offices to assist the youth with obtaining employment once they have completed the program. We are just as ecstatic as they are after they earn their first paycheck.
