Independent Living & Fostering Futures Training

Independent Living and Fostering Futures programs answer all these questions. Join us for an exceptional training led by the head of Impact Living Services as well as DSS experts on Fostering Futures.  We will cover both programs in-depth and offer a Q&A time so you can gain a better understanding of how to support older youth as a CASA. We will actually be touring one of the independent living apartments as part of this training!
