Helping Foster Youth Realize Their Dreams



Foster youth have dreams. It's our job at CAS to help them realize those dreams.

With the support of DHR, CAS launched a service in 2010 for older youth who are in foster care and close to leaving the care of the public child welfare system. In our field of service, we refer to this as “aging out” of the system. We acknowledge that most young people who have grown up in the best of situations are not prepared to launch independent and successful lives at age 19, and many young adults are a part of their families’ households well into their 20’s.

CAS provides a variety of services for Independent Living (IL) youth and the professionals who serve them. Click here to learn more about our IL program.
