Aftercare Programs

The Aftercare agencies provide intensive case management and support services to young adults between the ages of 18 and 22. The Aftercare agency will begin working with the young adult prior to DYFS closing the youth’s case, and can continue to work with him or her after the case is closed with DYFS. Aftercare provides the young adult with assistance in obtaining employment, housing and post-secondary education. These programs can also access flexible funds (wrap around funds) to enable the young adult to obtain the supports, which will assist them in transitioning from the child welfare system to self-sufficiency and stability. A young adult who has left Aftercare and is not yet 21 can return to the Aftercare agency for an additional short-term case management services, information, referral and wrap around funds.
