“Helping young people see that they can have a stable future is the goal of LifeSet specialists like LaMaison. The LifeSet program was developed in 1999 by the Memphis nonprofit Youth Villages. Today, it is being used in 18 states and Washington, D.C.
‘We believe that young people do well if they can,’ says Timothy Ashmore, regional director at Youth Villages. He says LifeSet is designed to serve as a bridge from the foster system into adulthood.”
