Project LIFE - Creating Lifelong Connections for Youth
LIFE stands for Living Independently, Focusing on Empowerment. Project LIFE is a UMFS program, funded by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
Their mission is to enhance the successful transition of older youth in foster care to adulthood by:
- increasing the capacity of professionals working with youth to engage in sound, evidence-based practices, and
- promoting permanent connections, effective preparation for transition to adulthood, and meaningful youth input into state and local policies and practices.
