The Youth Financial Empowerment (YFE) initiative is an asset building program for youth transitioning from foster care. This unique financial savings program offers youth in foster care, ages 16-21, the opportunity to save for specific asset purchases (education and homeownership) that will support economic independence. Participants contribute to these accounts with earned income and these contributions are matched with a mix of government and private funds that enable purchase of an approved asset goal.
