Kevin Key's message about the program:

Our teens don’t fit into the average populations for life skills classes in the community, and we try to help them learn independence skills in a variety of ways, including training developed especially around their special needs. 

We’ve had much success using these materials as annual birthday gifts for our kids, allowing them a year to work through a workbook together with their foster parents, respite workers, and therapists. 

They make a huge difference in their ability to succeed as adults once they leave the child welfare system. Thank you for helping provide these materials to our young adults! If you would like more information about this program, contact Kevin Key or call 708-222-3591. For more ways you can help UCP Seguin, please email Dawneen Suriano or call 708-222-3591

Message to sponsors:

It’s the old story—we’ve done as much as we can with as little as we can scrape together, and we get less and less help from the state every year.  So every little bit that you help us with will be stretched the most it can be, and will make a huge difference in the lives of the kids we love and serve.  Traditionally, when foster children grow up, they leave the system, and a huge percentage become homeless or enter the criminal justice system. 

We use these resources to equip our kids for independence so that their outcomes will be successful.

Over and over again, our kids have proven themselves and gone on to be productive members of society. 

Thank you for any help you give us in these efforts!
