(Transitional Living Program)
RichstoneFamily Center has been awarded a $4,995.25 grant in order to create a computer lab for their Transitional Living Program, which provides a safe and stable environment for young women ages 18-24, who have been emancipated from foster care and are learning to become self-sufficient members of society. Girls can stay in the house for up to two years and must attend school, work, save for a future apartment deposit, and adhere to rules regarding curfew and chores. The four computer stations will enable residents to more efficiently complete school/training assignments, fill out job applications and learn office skills. It will reduce the girls’ high levels of stress by having access to technology in the safety of their own home. Richstone is committed to the Transitional Living Program as part of their ongoing dedication to preventing child abuse and strengthening families since 1973.
