New York's Transitional Foster Care Program assists adolescents in foster family care in making successful transitions to independent living. The basic principles underlying the program are individualized plans, a multi-level approach, adult learning standards, and reality-based experiences. Variations include a mentor model and a boarder model. Major goals are budgeting and money management, problem solving, and planning skills. (KDFB)
