    Vulnerable Youth in Transition

    In September 2011, the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council approved the creation of an ad hoc committee to address concerns about vulnerable youth in transition in our communities.  This action was taken in response to a report completed by a Young People Succeeding work group that sounded an alarm about gaps in services to youth in transition and the need for a coordinated system of care.

    The Vulnerable Youth in Transition Committee began meeting in December 2011 under an aggressive timeline to complete its work by September 2012.  The Committee focused its attention on youth and young adults aged 16 to 24 with little or no family support and who are experiencing one or more of the following:

    • Aging out of foster care,
    • Transitioning out of the juvenile justice system,
    • Mental illness,
    • Disabilities,
    • Homelessness.

    The recommendations of the Vulnerable Youth in Transition Committee provide next steps to begin the process of ensuring we know how many vulnerable youth in transition need assistance as well as preparing to improve coordination of services to them.
