Helping Youth to Succeed
Through Operation Foster Youth, Assistance League collaborates with local foster care homes and foster family agencies to provide needed assistance. This program service includes assisting foster care homes in providing support for former foster youth to successfully transition into adulthood. Through this program, Assistance League also provides service in the form of the basic essentials of clothing and necessary supplies for children entering the foster care system.
The program also assists with covering graduation expenses and proms. Foster youth and economically disadvantaged girls are referred to Operation Couture Closet for prom dresses as well as providing tuxedos for boys.
In addition, Christmas presents and summer activities for youth are provided through the foster family agencies.
