Life Lines

Services for Foster Care Youth

Who We Are

The Life Lines Program serves current and former foster care youth ages 16-23. Our programming is specially designed to help youth become self-sufficient, confident, and resilient.

Youth in Life Lines benefit from intensive case management and are assisted with educational and training programs, financial education, medication management, employment placement assistance, mental health services, and general life skills instruction.

“They need the same level of support that most of us were afforded.”

At-risk youth look just like everyone else, but they lack the resilience, support, community, and safety that the average person is given. Life Lines gives current and former foster care youth the tools to become their best selves and to feel supported along the entire journey.

Success Story

Yusef is a former participant in the Life Lines program, which provides resources for current and former foster care youth ages 16-23. Through internship opportunities provided by Bright Spot Farms and the New Castle County Courthouse, Yusef secured real-world work experience, subsequently landed a full-time job with the courthouse, and transitioned from the Life Lines Housing Program into his own apartment.
