I agree as to posting this on the message board for more responses from members. But I will give you a some ideas as well. I would have wanted to know about how to recevie all of these benefits when ever I got out of Foster Care. Every one talks about the benefits but when your out on your own who do you go to, where , and how do you receive them. Another few things I would suggest is teach them the importants of keeping a job, insurance, how to get insurance on there own, how to enroll in college on there own, the importance of banking and fianceing so that you can spend your money wisely and appropraitely. Independance is nice but it is really hard to juggle ones your really out on your own. Hope that helps some. Have a Wonderful day and please don't for get to post this up on the message board. You'll get lots of responses. Thanks again.

Hi. I am fairly new to this site. I have been working on classes for the independent living program at our agency. I would love to have some ideas for classes if anyone has some suggestions. I want to know what you all feel are important things to learn. What do you wish someone had told you or taught you, etc. I really want it to be fun and interesting. Anyone like to share?
