Foster Youth Support

The Children’s Cabinet supports youth ages 15 to 21 that are aging out or have aged out of foster care.

The Children’s Cabinet provides case management services to foster youth in order to help them become self-sufficient.  We have developed numerous community collaborations to provide goods and services to young adults in need of help.

We help with developing and implementing a plan for a successful transition into adulthood.  We provide support and encouragement to ensure success in adulthood.

We are able to provide limited financial assistance, please contact us if any questions.

Educational Training Vouchers (ETV): The ETV Program is a national program for youth who qualify and have aged out of the foster care system.  ETV offers financial assistance to eligible current and former foster youth to attend an accredited college, university, vocational or technical college. The ETV program helps students in their own efforts to secure financial aid to enroll in college.
