Indiana Connected By 25

Helping those transition out of the Foster care System and into the Community

In Studio Guest: President/Chief Executive Officer – Brent Kent

“Indiana Connected by 25, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides financial, educational and social support to assist foster care youth at a most critical time – when they are about to or have already transitioned out of the foster care system, most often with no family or economic support. ”

Every year in Indiana, about 500 youth age out of the foster care system and into our communities. Statistically they fare dramatically worse than 18-year-olds with parental support.

But research has shown that if we can help develop a solid foundation with some very basic and fundamental skills, as well as a sound support network, we can foster success for these youth and in the process save our economy millions of dollars annually.

As a not-for-profit, Indiana Connected By 25, Inc. relies on the support and generosity of organizations and individuals who understand and believe in the value of continuing to foster success for youth exiting the foster care system.

Will you help us continue our mission to foster success and productive independence for the youth in our community who are transitioning out of the foster care system?

Together we can make a meaningful difference in young lives.”
