NCJW Houston, joins annually with Children’s Protective Services and Junior Acheivement to offer the PAL – Preparation for Adult Living – program to young adults aging out of foster care.  This one-day program, which will take place Thursday August 2, 2018 at the Junior Acheivement building, guides about 25 students through a series of stations so that they can learn the basics including budgeting, opening a checking account, buying a car, renting an apartment and preparing a resume. Our NCJW volunteers serve breakfast and lunch as well as provide backpacks filled with a variety of items – sheets, towels, toiletries, kitchen utensils – to get them started in their independent lives.
