Adoptive children can receive independent living grants if they were in foster care, there are specific rules. The grants help with college and other stuff. You should contact your state agency that works with abuse and try to get ahold of the Independent Living program.

Hi Debbie. The various states have programs called Independent Living. If you were in foster care you would be eligible. In addition in Oregon we now have scholarships/grants for foster kids as well. You could look online through your state child welfare system. Kris
