February 2008Vol. 9, No. 1Youth Transitioning to Independent Living

The Finance Project has launched a new website for youth transitioning out of foster care and those who work with them. The Information Resource Center provides links to resources on how to develop and sustain supports and services for these youth. It is supported by the Foster Care Work Group, a network of national foundations that developed a shared vision and investments to facilitate more successful transitions for youth aging out of foster care. The Information Resource Center website is organized around the framework of five key strategies: education, workforce, financial literacy, savings and asset building, and entrepreneurship. It also includes links to permanency resources.
