HOUSE Webinars

Foster Progress Workshops 

An important piece of Foster Progress's advocacy work is providing trainings to youth and groups interested in supporting youth from foster care in their transition into adulthood. We have impacted hundreds of foster parents, youth, and caseworkers through these workshops, equipping them with the tools necessary to support youth's success in college and beyond. 

HOUSE Liaisons and campus support professionals: Is your campus prepared to support youth in foster care? Join Foster Progress and DCFS for a 3-part learning series on supporting foster youth on your campus. You do not need to attend all sessions to benefit from them.
