Good Transitions: Aging Out of Foster Care

More than 200 people will age out of foster care this year with nowhere to go or no family to support their transition. Goodwill is here to help by providing independent living skills preparation, in-home support services, and transitional services to youth 14 to 23 years of age who are in foster care or exiting foster care due to an applicable reason. This program is operated in the New Orleans and Houma regions and is funded through Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and Goodwill. Contact us today if you need assistance.
