Helping youth in foster care to transition into healthy adult lives
PDX-Connect addresses the many needs of youth transitioning from foster care—from basic life-skill development and mental-health support to education, job training and placement, and more. Bringing services directly to youth where they live, our Life Coaches provide the consistent presence their clients need to realize their individual goals, navigate government systems, and successfully transition out of foster care into adult life.
