Episode 7: "Options for Aging Foster Youth in West Virginia" - Michelle Fleece, MODIFY Program Manager

"West Virgina foster youth are all amazing and they need to know their options." As the final installment to our foster care awareness saga, we interview Michelle Fleece, Program Manager of the Mentoring with Oversight for Developing Independence with Foster Youth (MODIFY) program at the WVU CED. Michelle reviews all the details of how her program can help aging youth from foster care to attend college or other training programs after high school.

Adjusting the Sails is a podcast hosted by the Paths for Parents and Family to Family programs at the WVU CED aimed to discuss the lives and specific challenges children with special health care needs and other disabilities and their families, caregivers, and service providers face, and how to manage those challenges. The podcast serves as a platform for all disability-related topics to be discussed and as a mediator between families and caregivers to share their stories and experiences. The podcast features guest speakers, panelists, and a variety of program representatives and service providers to offer education and training to the listener.
