Youth Transition Services
Franklin County Children Services (FCCS) strives to provide the highest quality of services, counseling and life skills instruction to every young adult aging out of foster care; and to successfully transition each young adult from the care of FCCS to a state of productive independence. All youth ages 14 and older under the custody of FCCS are eligible for assessment services. Each youth is assigned an emancipation counselor and participates in an assessment and planning experience to set their independent living plan in motion. Services offered include: transitional living, independent living, life skills training and college-bound mentoring. Click here to learn more about Youth Transition Services.
