Women In Transition, Inc.
Women in Transition, Inc. provides a holistic approach to transitioning out of foster care through the renewal of Spirit and Mind by promoting spiritual, emotional, physical and financial wellness. The program is designed for teenage girls in foster care, ages 18 through 21, to understand their needs and to build upon their strengths. The program consists of a 11 week personal development curriculum where the young women create a Personal Development Plan that is followed with close case management and mentoring until they transition out of care. Women In Transition, Inc. assist young women to embrace the transitioning process and to exit foster care equipped to live healthy independent lives.
Women in Transition, Inc. is a 501c3 organization supported by individual donations.
Who We Are
No other organization offers this innovative, hands-on approach which bridges the gap at the end of the transition pipeline for girls aging out of the foster care system.
WITs distinctive style helps to offer a boutique set of services through a results-based curriculum designed to successfully transition teenage girls out of the foster care system.
Here at WIT, we recognize the realities of the foster care system and it’s our job to establish a bridge in the system by working collaboratively and serving as a resource to foster care agencies, foster parents, and department of social services to support girls in their care who are on the cusp of transitioning.
WIT offers the “Personal Development Institute” curriculum which is based on the following four (4) core competencies: Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, and Financial Development.
Our total commitment is to provide interpersonal and life skills to young women aging out of foster care, by providing personal development, employment preparation, emergency assistance funds, and after care case management to increase and sustain emotional, financial, spiritual and physical stability.
Here at WIT, we’ve pledged to provide girls in care between the ages of 18 -21 years old with the necessary skills needed to make the transition from “in care” to “out of care” manageable, safe and secure.
WIT believes that no child in foster care should be left behind.
