RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Employment and Human Services Director, or designee, to accept funding from the Assistance League of Diablo Valley in an amount not to exceed $11,000 for the Independent Living Skills Program, Senior Year Expenses Scholarship Program for foster youth residing in Contra Costa County for September 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

FISCAL IMPACT:

County to receive an amount not to exceed $11,000 from Assistance League of Diablo Valley. (No County match)

BACKGROUND:

The funding from the Assistance League of Diablo Valley will assist Independent Living Skills Program (ILSP) foster youth participants with the cost of high school senior year expenses. Program participants are foster youth who are Juvenile Court dependents of Contra Costa and foster youth residing in the County. ILSP will administer, through Volunteer and Emergency Services in Action (VESTIA), the Senior Year Living Expenses Scholarship Program to eligible foster youth on behalf of the Assistance League of Diablo Valley. The program was created by ILSP to address the needs of foster youth high school seniors as foster care payments received by care providers are insufficient to provide for extracurricular activities.


CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

Without funding from the Assistance League of Diablo Valley, the Senior Year Scholarship Program for foster youth would not be funded.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

The funding will support one of the five community outcomes established in the Children's Report Card: 2) "Children and Youth Healthy and Preparing for Productive Adulthood" by assisting foster youth with the costs of high school senior year expenses, encouraging continued school attendance and high school graduation.
