According to a January 2021 article published in INSIDE HIGHER ED, even though “an estimated 80 percent of youth in foster care hope to attend college, studies have found that only an estimated 3 percent to 5 percent successfully complete an undergraduate degree — compared with 29 percent of the general population.”

Consequently, Delta Family Services has been working with community partners to create accessible educational options for young adults.

If getting a college degree is one of your  goals, Delta’s partnership program with Harcum College is registering new students for the next cohort. Attend classes at our Glenside, PA location just two nights per week!

**Classes are currently online with direct support offered through Zoom and continuous individualized advising.
