Clearing The Hurdles
Easing foster kids’ track to independence
There’s a lot to learn and adjust to for any young adult leaving their family home to live on his own. Leaving foster care with no family support system to rely on is to undertake a crash course—difficult, but rewarding– in Life 101.
The Concho Valley Transition Center is there to help the current and former foster youth in this new stage of their adulthood. Serving male and female current/former foster youth ages 16-26. We offer advice and emotional support in resolving problems, refer participants to appropriate community programs, help them apply for housing, college entrance and financial aid, and give them limited assistance with in-kind donations and cash. Most important of all , we offer a program in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission which helps young adults complete suitable job training and learn how to get and hold on to a job, and will help pay essential living and work-related expenses until they can cover these costs on their own.
