Welcome to Connections to Independence

The Mission of Connections to Independence is to provide unique programming and advocacy for foster care youth, ages 15 - 24, to promote a successful and healthy transition to living independently as they reach adulthood. 
 
Connections to Independence (C2i) is a unique organization that provides services to connect permanent placement providers, community-based organizations and Counties in a formalized partnership to provide support for youth in foster care.
 
Services are specifically designed to meet the County's goals for preparing youth for a healthy, balanced life as productive adults and citizens as they age out of the foster care system.
 
C2i values are based on a healthy mind, body, and soul philosophy with service outcomes focused on five core competencies: Financial Literacy, Housing, Employment, Education and Personal Wellness.
 
C2i services are individualized by meeting youth at their level and developing a comprehensive Independent Living Plan that encompasses the youth's dreams, goals, and aspirations for their life during and after foster care.
