TheRecord – Crown wards voice fears over losing support too soon

TheRecord – Crown wards voice fears over losing support too soon.

Here’s an article worth reading, published in the Waterloo Region Record on Saturday, June 9.

It is about foster children who have managed to work their way through the system, and attend post-secondary education.

When they reach the age of 21, they are cut off. Period.

Most young adults working their way through post-secondary education have family to fall back on to help them through tough times, holidays, and so on.

These young adults are left to struggle on their own.  Some are fortunate to have had excellent workers, who keep in contact with them after they age out.  This type of worker treats their career as a calling, rather than a job.  A huge shout out to those workers!!
