Are there any funding for youths aging out of care in NY. As a current Social Worker and former foster youth (2006), I'm in the process of developing an agency to provide care coordination services and housing to youths. Suggestions please.

Hi, Right now we have limited Independent Living Program info. New York State is very regionalized. Here is our local link to New York resources. https://www.fosterclub.com/resources?body_value=&field_resource_areas_se...

We have been waiting for info on a new website for services for New York. When I get them, I will post them. :)

What priority areas are you researching? Are you looking into housing?

Above is a link to the NYS Office of Children and Family Services website that has some valuable information for youth, parents/caretakers, and stakeholders. Although it is not specific to Housing services, it is a great starting place.

Great! Thanks. I was looking into housing as a priority because so many youths who've aged out has ended up being homeless. Looking at how we can curve homelessness.
