The numbers are somewhat staggering for foster children in San Antonio that turn eighteen and age out of the system. According to Family Tapestry, they are currently experiencing a sixty percent rate of return of youth who initially left care.
The THRU project has finalized a partnership with Family Tapestry to become San Antonio’s newest Supervised Independent Living (SIL) provider. THRU is working along Highland Commercial Properties and their thirteen apartment locations to help teens who enter back into extended foster care. These adult teens have the ability to learn about adulthood while having their own place to call home.
