Speaker: Tayla Readshaw, MSW, LCSW, Roots and Wings

Topic: Common Challenges Aged-Out Foster Youth Face and Best Practices for Intervention


Roots & Wings is a private non-profit organization that supports young adults between the ages of 18-24 who have aged out of foster care. The mission of Roots & Wings is to promote self-sufficiency. The organization provides safe housing, counseling, case management, educational support, and life skills training for young adults as they transition to independence. Our presentation will provide an in-depth description of the agency’s services, as well as an overview of the common challenges aged-out foster youth face and best practices for intervention. Talya will also be accepting donations for new apartments that are being set u for these youth. Most needed are the basic pantry items as listed below.


We will provide a light dinner and time for networking before our presenter begins at 6:30pm.
