As our mission is to provide a continuum of care to abused, neglected and abandoned children in North Texas, it only makes sense that in 2016 we launch a Transitional Living Program for young women aging out of foster care. The Transitional Living Program will include provisions for safe housing and service components that provide for mental and physical health, education and improved well-being.
The young women will live on the Jonathan’s Place campus in the Mike Modano Cottage. Young women in our program will be taught resourcefulness through hands-on learning, emphasizing the development of educational, vocational, financial, domestic and personal safety. Young women aging out of foster care deserve continued support, access to positive education and work experiences, and the opportunity to make decisions that can positively influence the outcomes of their futures. Everyone deserves and needs a support system.
