After Care is a program designed to continue emotional, financial, and relational support for young adults while helping them transition to independent living. Youth who turn 18 years old while in Basic Care and complete high school, are eligible for the After Care program. The purpose of After Care is to help ensure that Hendrick Home graduates are economically self-sufficient and are able to provide an appropriate standard of living for themselves while they pursue higher education.
Children in the After Care program are assisted with budgeting and financial preparation for eventual independent living. They may pursue higher education or attend a certification program with the aid of the Home’s “After Care” scholarship program.
