Why We Do It
Youth, who are involved in the state foster care system struggle with basic common life skills that most take for granted. When they turn 18, they enter the community with little to no support. Youth Service staff work on a daily basis to ensure that youth become productive adult citizens that are educated, employed, and connected to their community.
Youth 18-21 years of age that are currently committed in the Kentucky state foster care system are eligible for the Independent Living Program. State workers need to refer youth to our program.
