Find Campus Support Programs

Starting college can be overwhelming and confusing at times for all new students. Current and former foster youth have the benefit of many support programs to help—from application through graduation. These programs may offer peer advisors and personal counselors, who can become your on-campus family. They can provide academic advising, housing assistance, tutoring, mentoring, financial assistance, special accommodations for students with disabilities, counseling, social activities and many other resources.

These programs are specifically designed for foster youth but services can vary considerably from college to college. Download this list of questions, then contact each program directly to get the best idea of whether the specific program will meet your needs.
