Vital Documents

Health & Well-Being

Young people who have experienced foster care are often left without many of the necessary documents needed to navigate adulthood.

For example, you may need your birth certificate to obtain a drivers license, diplomas and vaccination records for work or school, and health insurance information or family medical history when you see a doctor. Unfortunately, tracking these documents down isn’t always easy. We’re here to help!

*When needed, we will work with your IL or OYS providers to access and manage your vital documents.

Examples of Vital Documents:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card
  • Health Insurance Cards/Info
  • Previous Medical Records
  • Immunizations
  • Medications- dose & name
  • Pharmacies Used
  • Family Medical Histories 
  • Diplomas

*When needed, we will work with your IL or OYS providers to access and manage your vital documents.
