We provide services for at-risk youth and families, and youth aging out of the foster care system to expand their skills and knowledge, strengthen their self-confidence, create healthy community relationships and help youth learn positive self-guidance.
Youth receiving services from BCFS-Corpus Christi are between the ages of 14 and 26. Most have spent time in the foster care system or juvenile justice system, or have battled issues like homelessness, substance abuse or truancy.
The center strives to serve youth, their families and community members to the best of their abilities, or refer them to an entity who can provide the appropriate services.
Services offered to youth & families:
- Preparation for Adult Living (PAL): PAL provides transition services to foster youth and alumni from ages 15 1/2 to 21 in order to better prepare young adults for emancipation
- Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program: ETV helps Texas youth make a smoother transition to self-sufficiency and independence by providing funding for education & training
- Texas Workforce Commission (TWC): TWC assists form and current foster youth between the ages of 16-25 years old with completing their GED, and seeking gainful employment
- Case Management
