FURS is a coordinated statewide, regional, and county-level system designed to provide county-level in-home, in-person mobile response during situations of instability. A toll-free hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week staffed with caring counselors trained in conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques for children and youth impacted by trauma.
County Mobile Response and Stabilization Teams are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In California, if you’re in foster care at age 18, you have the option to stay in foster care until age 21. Even if you leave foster care, then change your mind, you may have the option to go back into foster care until you reach 21. This link offers guidance and numbers to call for re-entering the foster system.
When transition-age youth (18-26) leave the System, Just in Time invites them to join a reliable, responsive, and real community that helps them become Confident, Capable and Connected.
By using the Seeking Assistance Tab at the top right, you can find help with transitional housing and mentors.
