For some, there's no place like home... For others, there's just no home
Indeed, there are more than 2,000 children in Fresno County’s foster care system that are at risk of becoming homeless again when their foster care ends at age 18. Even with legislation driving transition programs for foster youth, there are hundreds who slip through the cracks.
Many of these children, who have been abused, neglected or abandoned by their parents, will face significant challenges on their road to adulthood. The difference for those who “make it” into school, careers and independent living—versus those who don’t—is having someone there to help along the way. That's where Fresno County's Foster Youth Education Services (FYES) comes in. We exist to make that difference.
