"YTIA" pronounced "Ya-T-Uh" or "Y-T-Uh" Either way it means the same thing: Youth Transitioning Into Adulthood
From Dependence to INDEPENDENCE
Youth aging out of the foster care system need a support team they can utilize and rely upon when they are "on their own." YTIA is that TEAM. YTIA seeks to identify youth who are aging out of the system and want to "make it on their own" and works with them to help ensure they successfully transition into adulthood and not return to be part of the problem but to be part of the solution. YTIA bridges the gap from Dependence upon the foster care system to Independence by utilizing the T.E.A.M. approach.

"Bridging the Gap" for 5 Years !!!!
Over the past 5 years, YTIA has provided financial assistance to youth with graduation expenses, vocational license fees, summer job internship expenses, conducted workshops for over 200 youths, provided self-esteem building projects and opportunities, mentorship and support for youths both in and out of care, and created a TEAM of youths who give back to the community throughout the year. We look forward to continuing to support youth who are again out of the system and those who have aged out. Thank you to those who continue to support our mission and our vision.
