Journey to Adult Success
When young adults age out of foster care at age 18, many aren’t sure where to turn.
Unlike their peers, they lack a safety net — and, often, a roof — to support them when things don’t go as planned.
Here in Green Bay, we’re attempting to rewrite that story.
“The JAS House has helped me achieve more than a few goals. I’ve gotten a job and started a savings account, learning basic yet fundamental lessons about living in an apartment and how to work as a team with the other residents. JAS helped pull me out of a rut and regain some balance in my life.” ~ Simon
