Imagine being taken from your home and the only family you've ever known. Your brothers, sisters, mom, and dad. You wonder where you are going? Who is going to take care of you? What is going to happen to your siblings? Who is going to take care of them? Regardless of the reasoning for being placed in foster care, you long to be with your family.
Time passes and you are almost at the point where you can age out of the system, by this time you've burned many bridges, missed out on a lot of education, and lack the necessary life skills needed to be successful. Your 18th birthday is approaching quickly, but you have no skills and no family to turn to. What will you do?
At The Family Connection Inc., our mission is to assist children who are aging out of foster care with the tools to become self sufficient on their own. We will teach them life skills, case management, educational development and career guidance. They will have the opportunity to transition into their own living space with the help of their case management team.
Equipping families and individuals with the necessary resources for success.
The Family Connection Inc. is a 501c3 non profit agency that offers life skills, transitional housing services, educational development, and career guidance for older foster care youth.
