REGISTER NOW: Aging Out of Foster Care Webinar - Challenges and Options

This informative webinar is geared toward foster care parents and professionals who want to see teens with disabilities succeed as they transition out of the system and prepare for adulthood at the same time. You'll hear about the reality of caring for kids with disabilities in foster care, why creating a person-centered plan matters and learn about resources to increase transition success in the lives of some of Arizona's most vulnerable young people. Presenters from the University of Arizona's Sonoran University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, the Arizona Department of Child Safety and the Division of Developmental Disabilities will speak.
