Our Fostering Futures program provided care for 221 young people aging out of the Iowa foster care system. Many young people in Fostering Futures are experiencing homelessness, unemployment and mental health concerns. Case workers help young people navigate housing, transportation, post-secondary training and education, budgeting and more. These services help young people gain and maintain stability after aging out of foster care – no matter when a crisis arises.
We provided 3,001 nights of safety at the emergency youth shelter.
A total of 466 family counseling sessions were held for youth and their families at the emergency youth shelter. These services help families safely reunify after a shelter placement.
