Former foster care youth still need help
Youth that are no longer in the foster care still need help. Transitional Housing Placement Plus Program (THP+) offers former foster youth ages 20- 24 housing and intensive supportive services. These youth do not qualify for the services that are afforded through the extension of foster care. Please support the THP+ Statewide Implementation Project.
