Youth Empowerment

Project LIFE (Learning Independence and Fostering Empowerment)

The state-wide Project LIFE program helps former foster youth learn skills toward achieving self-sufficiency during their transition out of foster care. During this year-long program, these young adults are provided rental and utility assistance, a start-up fund to help them first move in, and assistance that can include locating and securing housing, managing personal finances, planning for education or a career, and improving parenting skills. Dedicated case managers work one-on-one with each participant to help them make and achieve personal goals and otherwise support them based on their individual needs during the program.
