We provide a safe and supportive environment as well as individual services to youth aging out of foster care (foster care alumni) and those who have already aged out.

Please contact Deb Kelleher if you would be interested in hosting or attending an alumni meeting in your local area. We are working on forming groups in Hartford, and New Haven and would be open to adding other towns if the interest is strong enough.
