Students begin their college journey at WMU with a fresh start because their foster care case history information is not reviewed by program staff. [...]students are invited to actively give input into programming activities and participate in program planning decisions. Campus and DHS coaches are all trained to support students across seven lifespan developmental domains that have been identified as important for transitioning out of foster care: education and academics, finances and employment, housing, physical and mental health, social relationships and community connections, personal and cultural identity, and life skills (Casey Family Programs, 2006).
