Every year in Indiana, about 500 youth transition out of the foster care system and into our community, most often unprepared to handle independence. Indiana Connected by 25 is dedicated to providing the financial, educational and social support to assist these youth during this critical time.
Research has shown that if we can help develop a solid foundation with some very basic and fundamental skills and a sound support network for these youth, we can foster real, meaningful success for them and save and improve our local economy by hundreds of millions of dollars annually.
Will you help us continue to make a difference?
