Info for Young People
Wraparound is emergency funding for eligible young people who were in foster care at age 16 or older or in a DCF adolescent contracted housing program between the ages of 18-21. The funds can be used to pay security deposits, cover up to four months' rent, purchase linens, furniture, driving lessons, food, or other things that can help you transition to independence.
