Achieving healthy and productive lives for transition age youth in foster care.

Foster youth between the ages of 16 and 24 are particularly vulnerable, as they transition into adulthood and age out of the child welfare system. Typically, they have few supportive adults in their lives and limited access to college and career options. Despite these barriers, they are resilient and can make the transition if given the opportunity. We work with partners to ensure that youth who are aging out of the child welfare system become self-sufficient and thriving adults.
