Resources for Older Youth

Older youth (ages 14-21) are a particular risk for aging out of the child welfare system without a safe and permanent home, and without having learned the life skills necessary to be successful independent adults.  For this reason, CASA allows older youth to receive assistance from CASA until age 26.  Our Older Youth Specialist Kandi Bond works with Older Youth in addition to their CASA team to help prepare them for life after foster care.  The organizations below offer specific resources for older youth as well.
