Achieving Self Sufficiency through Supported Transition (ASSIST)
ASSIST is a state funded program that provides enhanced independent living services for youth who have aged out of Delaware's foster care system. The program provides a stipend (the amount is based on the youth's financial need) that can be used for the following:
- Living Expenses
- Education Expenses
- Employment Related Expenses
- Transportation Expenses
To be eligible for ASSIST funds, the youth must be active with an Independent Living Provider, complete a financial literacy training course and employed (paid or unpaid) and/or attending school. For more detailed information on the ASSIST program, contact your Independent Living worker.
