Description: For Keeps was created to identify and develop ways to find and strengthen permanent families for older children who are in foster care, or who might be at risk for coming into foster care. For Keeps is grounded in the belief that everyone deserves and needs permanent family connections to be successful. Every year, hundreds of young people in Virginia's foster care system begin their journey as independent adults. Unlike other young adults with strong family support, many former foster children are alone as they face the challenges of jobs, housing and personal relationships. Many overcome the problems they encounter and lead lives as healthy and productive members of our communities. Others do not fare as well. Without family support they find their way onto welfare rolls, into homeless shelters, and sometimes into mental health and correctional institutions. For Keeps' goal is to connect older children in foster care to adults who sincerely care about offering young people the support, advice and guidance they need to be successful as adults.
