Foster Youth Services

Foster Youth Services (FYS) programs provide support services to foster children who suffer the traumatic effects of displacement from family and schools and multiple placements in foster care.  FYS programs have the ability and authority to ensure that health and school records are obtained to establish appropriate placements and coordinate instruction, counseling, tutoring, mentoring, vocational training, emancipation services, training for independent living, and other related services.  FYS programs work with current and former youth, as well as staff members of group homes, schools, juvenile detention facilities, child welfare agencies, probation departments, and community service agencies to influence foster children's day-to-day routines, both during and after school.  FYS programs increase the stability of placements for foster children and youth.  These services are designed to improve the children's educational performance and personal achievement, directly benefiting them as well as providing long-range cost savings to the state.
