The Roots and Wings Model

Roots & Wings is a long-term, comprehensive solution to a problem overlooked today. We make a long-term investment in each young adult to allow them the time and support to build the educational foundation and social maturity they need to succeed. The case management services provided by our professional staff serve as a safety net, protecting our clients from the risks former foster youth face when left without support and guidance.

Roots & Wings recognizes the value of a solid education as the gateway to meaningful job opportunities. Therefore, we require our clients to earn their high school diploma or GED and then continue on to higher education and advanced vocational training programs. Our “graduates” transition to new and appropriate safe living environments with clear education/career goals, financial savings and community connections. Alumni stay connected, attend our seminars, holiday parties and celebrations, and are encouraged to interact with current clients providing them with real life role models and inspiration.
