It takes a community.
Here are some of the dynamic organizations and collaborations working together in foster care:
Transitions to Success: collaboration of organizations in Brown County who work with foster youth, youth who were formerly in out-of-home placement, and other disengaged youth and young adults to help them with independent living skills, including financial literacy, employment skills, education, and housing skills.
