In British Columbia, when a youth in foster care turns 19 years old they lose access to essential support services, such as their housing, social worker, mental health services, and financial support. They age out of care, whether they are ready or not!
Through the work we do at THS, we found that many people in our community are not fully aware of the difficult transition youth in care face when aging out.
From April 1st, 2019 to June 30th, 2019, Threshold Housing Society is bringing awareness to the issue of youth aging out of foster care through the Ready or Not – Aging out of Care campaign.
