LifeTies has received a $20,000 grant to pilot a new evidence-based program that reconnects youth that live in our group homes to their families and the people that are important within their lives. Once upon a time, it was possible for young people at the age of 18 to transition into adulthood without further supports. However, our economy has changed so much within the past 30 years. Today, youth that do not have family support systems in place often face homelessness and encounter poor life outcomes. We hope to fight against this trend with PACF’s grant support. Their funding support will be used to pilot a new approach to creating more meaningful lifelong connections with adults who will provide them with the supportive systems they need to transition to adulthood. This includes the provision of life skills services that help them with academic achievement, employment, and financial literacy. This infrastructure of supports will provide instrumental, emotional, financial, and/or informational resources that will improve life-outcomes. THANK YOU, PACF, FOR SUPPORTING OUR VISION!
