The Listening and Led by Youth in Foster Care: Grief, Hope, and Transitions (L.Y.G.H.T.) program is a peer grief support group influenced by and developed for youth in foster care. The L.Y.G.H.T. program supports, honors, and listens to youth in foster care who are grieving. This grief-informed and trauma-informed intervention is facilitated by supportive adults who acknowledge the challenges and transitions youth experience while navigating the foster care system.

We recognize the importance for youth to have a safe space of community, connection, and relatedness. If you are interested in learning more about the L.Y.G.H.T. program or want to speak to someone about becoming a L.Y.G.H.T. Facilitator, please contact: Juliette Martinez, SC L.Y.G.H.T.
