At Kids Central, we work to help youth and young adults build a strong foundation for their lives. Our Independent Living and Extended Foster Care provide young adults with the life skills and services that they need to make a successful transition to the responsibilities of adulthood.
Kids Central and its partners provide Independent Living services to youth and young adults in the foster care system. These services prepare the youth for adulthood and life after foster care. For youth aging-out of the system (those turning 18 years old without returning to the care of their parents or being adopted) it is a requirement to have the basic life skills to function successfully on their own. Training includes but is not limited to: financial literacy training, household management, educational and career planning.
