When Foster Kids aren’t Kids Anymore

A new pilot program with Texas CASA is working to make a difference for foster children.  Texas’ court system does its best to care for children who don’t have a permanent home, but what happens when foster kids aren’t kids anymore? Do you remember what it was like when you turned 18? Many 18-year-olds are expected to become responsible adults who can provide for themselves financially, but for children in foster care, that transition can often be difficult and daunting. Now, a new pilot program with Texas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)  is working to train mentors who can help these teens transition into happy, healthy and productive members of society.
