Imagine LA launches new Pilot for Parenting Foster Youth to help prevent homelessness.
Imagine LA has ten transitional age youth (TAY) who are emancipating from foster care with children of their own now enrolled in its Family Empowerment & Mentorship Program.
These young families are all aging out of foster care under AB12, an assembly bill which allows them to remain in foster care and receive services until they are 21. Thanks to the partnership with DCFS, all of young Moms have received a Section 8 voucher and Imagine LA is working with our partners to help find and secure housing and pairing them with mentor teams that will help them build skills, learn positive parenting skills, access resources and thrive!
This Pilot is also funded by the Inter-Agency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect.
We are now recruiting mentor teams to journey with these TAY Families. To learn more, please contact Tara at 323.944.0210 X412 or Tara@ImagineLA.org.
