Aftercare Services Help Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

The Iowa Aftercare Services Network provides transition services that support youth age 18-21 who age out of foster care.  
Emphasis is placed on housing, employment, education, financial capability and life skills, and relationships. Youth receive individualized services from case managers, called Self Sufficiency Advocates. A network of eight child welfare providers comprise the Iowa Aftercare Services Network, providing services to 500+ youth each month.
