A DIFFICULT TRANSITION

For most people the transition to independence is a gradual one. During these transition years, young peoples families provide financial assistance, help them decide on a career, and/or support them while they learn to live on their own. However, youth aging out of the foster care system lack this much needed family and social support. As a result foster youth face enormous challenges in making a smooth transition into adulthood and living successful lives.

It is found that youth in foster care face significantly higher risks of homelessness, drug addiction, unemployment, and jail time upon turning 18 than the general public. There are more than 6,000 kids in the Georgia foster care system and each year, more than 500 of them reach adulthood. Independent living provides foster kids in our area with the tools they need to become stable and productive adults.
