About Chafee

The Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP) was created to assist youth in successfully emancipating from the foster care system, and to provide ongoing support to young adults as they overcome the hurdles of living independently.

We can help with:

  • finding educational programs
  • getting financial aid
  • securing housing
  • gaining employment
  • acquiring life skills

We do this by meeting with youth in the community, one-to-one independent living skills training, connecting youth to resources in their community and encouraging clients to set and pursue goals for success.
