The college invites families and youth with foster care backgrounds or staff who help students with foster care backgrounds to attend the Foster Family Open House Event on April 26th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at ICC West. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be available.
The event will feature topics such as financial aid, college preparation, The Independent Living Program, and Student Support Services. CE credits are available.
“This event is a great opportunity for families to come and see all the various support options ICC offers to youth who have gone through foster care,” explained Chris Cameron, Senior Recruiter. “From The Casto Family Endowed Scholarship Fund through the ICC Foundation to our Independent Living Program, our main goal is to help students access the resources they need to thrive during their college experience.”
