The road to adulthood is challenging. For those in foster care, it can be especially complicated and uncertain. We prepare teens and young adults, who are expected to age out of foster care, with the independent living tools necessary to flourish.
Join us for:
-Foster care resources onsite
1.5 CEU's available for foster parents in need of continuing education credits.
Older Youth Services is a continuum of care beginning at age 16 with an extension of foster care until 21 years of age—and voluntary services as a safety net from age 21 until age 23. Event is free and open to current, voluntary, and former foster youth in Lake County, IN, upon verification of wardship.
