About this resource

Fostering Success Michigan is a statewide initiative that aims to increase access to and success in higher-education and post-college careers for young adults with experience in the foster care system. Their "Getting to Know..." series features in-depth guides to help students with experience in the foster care system, professionals, and supportive adults as they navigate the education-to-career pipeline. Currently, the website features guides on health care and former foster youth's entitlements under the Affordable Care Act, financial aid, and the transition process. The series also features information for youth and alumni of care that are specific to different career sectors and information on child welfare for educators.
