“With her new family, Nyla started focusing on her future, and that’s when she met Ashley Ogans.
Ashley works for Youth Villages as a LifeSet specialist. The LifeSet program helps youth aging out of foster care to make the transition to college or independent adulthood easier.
‘We would meet once a week,’ said Ashley. ‘I would either go to her home or her school. We worked with her counselor to make sure she was able to attain all the goals she was working toward for college.’”
