As Angela interviews George, he shares about Project LIFE. “LIFE is an acronym. It stands for Living Independently, Focusing on Empowerment. The Project LIFE Program is a partnership with United Methodist Family Services (UMFS) and the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) where we support older youth in foster care and their families, and those surrounding supports around them as they transition into youth adulthood, so they can be a little bit more self sufficient as they as they get older.” Watch the full video below below for more Q&A and discussion about the program.
