Changing Outcomes for Youth in State Care
Teenagers without families are in trouble. Often these teens live in group homes or foster homes. Most of them have experienced trauma beyond what most of us can imagine. Many children were removed from their families at a young age and have been moved over and over again, never returning to their families or finding a new, permanent family.
If these teens don’t find families before they leave state care, there is a good chance they will end up homeless or unemployed. The girls are likely to get pregnant at least once before they turn 24. The boys are likely to become parents. http://www.chapinhall.org/research/report/midwest-evaluation-adult-functioning-former-foster-youth
Plummer Home is determined to change these outcomes using an Intervention Model that heavily emphasizes finding permanent families while teaching skills and connecting youth with community.
Our programs include a group home, supported apartment, foster care, community apartments and the On Point Teen Resource Center.
