Transition to Adulthood

The Home’s Comprehensive Foster Care Program services children of all ages up to age 22. Our Transition to Adulthood program provides foster families for older youth who will be “aging out” of the Department of Children and Families’ care. These young adults require specialized parenting to prepare them for the next phase in their lives. Foster parents are expected to teach basic life skills which include:

      • Financial competency 
      • Navigating public transportation 
      • Applying to jobs and/or college 
      • Learning household skills like laundry or cooking 

On the outside older youth may seem sufficient but they still need the love and guidance of a parent to ready them for what is next. The Comprehensive Foster Care Program offers services and supports to ensure foster parents have the tools they need to help youth succeed.
