Each year Josh’s Care Packages are distributed to make sure that youth aging out of the southern Maine foster care system know that other youth and community members are thinking about them as they attend college or a training program. Community members provide personalized care packages that include school supplies, personal care products, favorite foods and snacks, and special items that a young person can really use.
