Talbot County Department of Social Services (DSS) is working to get youth in foster care independent by age 21. The agency’s efforts focus on five strategies: financial stability, health care, education, lifelong connections, and housing. Businesses and civic organizations are assisting with needs associated with helping youth in foster care become independent.

Girl Scout Troop 323 of Easton recently sponsored a service project to gather household supplies for older youth in foster care, ages 18 to 21 who are living independently in Talbot County.  These supplies will help these youth as they learn the necessary skills of keeping their homes clean. For further information about how you can partner with Talbot County DSS, call the Talbot County Department of Social Services at 410-820-7371.
