February 24th 9:30-Noon   February Training Link

Traci L Baker LMSW, MSSW Region 1 Lead Pal Specialist  PAL Program Web Page

"The Preparation for Adult Living (PAL) program was implemented in 1986 to ensure that older youth in substitute care are prepared for their inevitable departure from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services’ care and support. At any given time, there are about 3,500 youth 16 years of age and older in substitute care. PAL program staff strive to provide each of these youth with skills and resources they will need to be healthy, productive adults.

Preparing youth for adulthood is much more than teaching them how to balance a checkbook and sign a lease. PAL services include involvement in programs aimed at improving youths' self-esteem and improving their ability to make responsible decisions. PAL helps youth face the challenges of adulthood and independence."

 

Please make plans to join us in February as we enjoy this training and learn together. We can't wait to see you there.
