The Indiana Department of Child Services is seeking contractors to provide services to youth who are aging out of foster care.
Indiana: Older Youth Services
The goals are to prepare youth to emerge into adulthood and move identified youth into a permanent housing setting that the youth can continue to live in once DCS closes the case. This program also includes allowing youth to voluntarily return to foster care on or after the youths 18th birthday.
The focus of the RFP is to seek service providers to assist in this effort by providing Older Youth Services. The RFP is interested in creative programming designed for older youth that focuses on experimental learning in education, housing, employment, and skill building.
DCS will be seeking up to 10 providers to provide statewide coverage.
