City Living, Inc.City Living NY is dedicated to helping youth aging out of the foster care system to achieve their personal goals and reach for their dreams.

City Living NY is a unique, holistic after-care program, working with our clients to overcome complex and varied challenges in order to have the same opportunities as any young adult on the road to independence.
