What is Safety Net?
Foster Care ends at 18. GROWING UP DOESN’T.
The Safety Net Mission:
Safety Net supports former foster youth in their critical post-foster care years. That means helping them with the resources to stay in school, receive job training and handle minor financial emergencies when they have nowhere else to turn.
Only 3% kids who age out will earn a college degree.
While the path each youth takes in unique, Safety Net is committed to helping our kids find their way. Consider this, you have been accepted to college, maybe the first in your family! For many of us, this is an exciting time! For those aging out of Foster Care, it can lead to more questions than answers. What will I do about housing? What if my books are more money than my financial aide? This is where Safety Net steps in.
