The Foundling’s Supportive Housing Program supports young people aging out of foster care or at risk of homelessness as they learn to support themselves and build a network of support critical to their lifelong success. Our Supportive Housing Program operates in Brooklyn, and provides personalized support to residents, including counseling and connections to education and employment.
The Foundling launched our Supportive Housing Program to provide housing and social support to 18-25 year-olds aging out of foster care or in the shelter system. The program fosters responsibility and enhances each person’s educational and employment opportunities. The Foundling connects participants with community partners, and a case planner maintains ongoing contact to ensure they are matched with personalized services based on their individual needs. Through a balance of teaching individual responsibility and offering and connecting young people with community support, our Supportive Housing Program helps to prepare young adults for the future.
