Foster Youth Individual Development Accounts (IDAs)

Women United (WU) raises funds to help foster youth prepare to be self-sufficient once they leave the foster care system. Our local United Way’s foster youth program includes case management, life skills training and financial support through the Individual Development Account (IDA) program.

IDAs are matched savings accounts that help cover basic necessities and education-related expenses for emancipated foster youth.
