State seeks holiday help for former foster children


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — The state’s looking for help with gifts for young adults who have aged out of the foster system.

The Department of Children and Family Services works with more than 600 young adults, from 18 to 23 years old, to make sure they have what they need to become self-reliant. No matter if they’re starting their first jobs, living on their own or getting ready to start college, they need help.

The Hope For The Holidays program helps those who have aged out have something to open on Christmas morning.
