The Possibilities Project: collaborating to help former-foster-care youth
About 23,000 young people “age out” of America’s foster-care system every year at a vulnerable age. Like most 18-year-olds, they’re financially ill-prepared to be fully independent. Their challenges are exacerbated by histories of abuse, abandonment and neglect. One member of the NeighborWorks network from Virginia has partnered with others to create an innovative solution.
