Chafee Funds For Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

Chafee Funds for Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

The goal of the Chafee program is to support and empower young people who are aging out of the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) system. We help them to become self-sufficient and healthy individuals in society. Each person can receive up to $4,000 over the duration of their participation in the program. This stipend is rewarded for general living and transition support, which may include rent and security deposits, food and tuition. For the young people that we serve, the ultimate goal is to empower them to become productive assets to our society and end their dependence on governmental services. We don’t want them to just succeed, we want them to excel!
