King 5: Treehouse Announces Statewide Program to Support Youth in Foster Care Beyond High School

>

 

Treehouse, a nonprofit that is dramatically improving high school graduation rates for youth in foster care, announced a major expansion of its services with the new program Launch Success at its annual Champions Luncheon. The statewide program will support youth who have experienced foster care beyond high school as they make the difficult transition into adulthood.

“A high school diploma is an absolutely critical milestone, not a destination,” said Janis Avery, CEO of Treehouse. “Far too many young people exit the foster care system and struggle to meet basic needs. One in five end up homeless within a year of aging out of the system. Launch Success will partner with young adults to pave pathways to a degree or other career credential, a living wage job and stable housing.”
