This is a follow-on session to the event earlier this year, “Helping Foster Care Youth Succeed: Skills and strategies that support the transition to adulthood,” which will explore in-depth the specific challenges faced by youth aging out of foster care in securing and retaining housing, and the skills and supports they need to ensure a successful transition into independent living.  The panel will feature a conversation with youth speakers, service providers, public agencies, and funders, and include a discussion around the housing landscape, effective models, policy initiatives, and private funding opportunities.

  • Challenges related to the application process and housing access/supply, the skills and supports needed to ensure a successful transition into independent living and post-secondary pathways, effective existing models, and needed reforms
  • How philanthropy can effectively support youth and organizations in this work, as well as work with partners to advance systemic change 
  • The development of a body of successful evidence-based practices to encourage systemic change, policy reform, and the creation of robust pathways at the city level


Designed for

All interested funders.
