Teresa Stivers, CEO-Walden Family Services
March 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Teresa Stivers, CEO of Walden Family Services, will discuss the challenges youth and young adults face when leaving foster care. Left particularly vulnerable to homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, and human trafficking, these young adults need more from our community. She will discuss traditional transitional housing programs (THPs), the challenges nonprofits face, and ways to get involved and change the story for the 17,000 Californians who age out of foster care every year so they do not fall into the human trafficking nightmare.
