Resource for youth aging out of foster care

Mental Health Task Force/Make It Work Milwaukee Update

Youth who have aged out of foster care have a new tool to help them navigate the critical resources they need to transition successfully into adulthood. The phone app, called GRiD MKE, launched last week – a highlight of the kickoff were remarks from some of the young people who played a role in designing the app. The app contains hundreds of resources in the areas of education, employment, health and housing as well as basic or emergency needs, like food and clothing pantries. It can be downloaded for free from the App store, and there is an option to email suggestions for additional resources. Thanks to Saint A’s for hosting the event!
