Kentucky Educational Collaborative for State Agency Children Resource Guide

Kentucky

“This resource book came about because several young people who had lived in parental and foster homes their entire lives realized they were facing life after high school in a nursing facility because of lack of available adult supports in the community and confusion about how to get them. 
 
“As a result, P&A brought together staff of several agencies to figure out how to help people find the transition services they needed. The group pooled their knowledge about available programs to put together a resource book that could be used by young people with disabilities in foster care to transition successfully to adulthood. 
 
“Although the original purpose of this book was to help kids in foster care, it can be used by young people with disabilities anywhere who are looking at life after high school.”
