My JumpVault Training for Caregivers and Youth. Thursday March 3, 3:00PM-4:00PM (EST)/2:00PM-3:00PM (CST)

 

Children in foster care often experience frequent changes in homes, schools, and service providers – disruptions that lead to fragmented care and disorganized, incomplete, and outdated life records. This predicament follows foster youth into independence, despite laws intended to give them the support they need through that transition. However, Florida has implemented a digital solution to assist youth, caregivers and workers: My JumpVault, to help smooth that transition to independence and improve the youth’s chance to success.
