Transitional Living Program
What happens to a foster child as they enter adulthood?
Most children who reside in foster or substitute care generally do not have the support or resources to help as they transition into adulthood. They rarely have family connections. The children are moved so often they haven’t established long term relationships with people who care. The goal of Azleway Valley View is to provide education, training, and support that will enable youth between the ages of 16 and 22 to transition from substitute care into independence and successfully integrate into community.
Azleway Valley View Transitional Living Program has developed a 26 week training curriculum in basic life skills coupled with experiential activities that will enhance the learning process. Included in the program are employment assistance, career guidance and planning, job interview skills training, financial management training, accessing health care, developing and maintaining healthy relationships, problem solving, driver’s education, and all the other skills and support a child needs to successfully navigate independent living.
