Safe Families PLUS, in conjunction with the
Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), provides
caring mentors to youth ages 14 to 21 as they
transition to adulthood. Mentors come alongside the
youth to provide them with support that endures.
Through consistent, one-on-one contact, mentors help
youth explore their self-identity, talents, strengths,
and career interests. These relationships open their
eyes to new experiences.
