Education & Youth Development
Casa Valentina's mission is to help at-risk youth and youth transitioning from foster care to independent living by providing housing and wrap around services. To achieve our mission: * We provide youth in Miami-Dade County who age out of foster care with up to two years of safe and affordable housing, life skills and self-advocacy training and the support services they need to become successful, independent adults. * We engage in advocacy within the child welfare system to ensure our residents, and all transitioning foster youth, have access to the resources and services they need to achieve autonomy. * We conduct community outreach and offer education and training on critical foster care issues to create greater awareness and support for youth emerging from foster care. Casa Valentina's vision is a community in which all foster children receive the care and support they need to reach their full potential.
